    Luosifen is a traditional Chinese noodle soup infused with the flavors of snails. Prepared with a complex broth simmered with beef and pork bones, the soup boasts a balance of sweetness, spiciness, and sourness. Topped with an array of vegetables, peanuts, bamboo shoots, and tofu skin, Luosifen offers a delightful combination of textures and flavors that make it a popular dish in China.

    From Prep to Plate

    Seth Tillman visits Yanzi Noodle House in Fairfax, VA for the one-of-a-kind luosifen (noodle soup flavored with snails). The preparation involves a multitude of ingredients and steps, including cooking the snails in a wok with various seasonings. The snails are then added to a rich stock made from beef and pork bones, which has been simmering for over eight hours.

    The noodle soup that I’m slurping is a fantasia: Flavors amplify and fade, amplify and fade, over and over.
