    Default Asian Noodles

    Do you have a favorite Asian noodle?

    There's so many: Shanghai, Taiwanese, Rice, Flat, Udon, Soba

    I tend to stick to soba and rice noodles.

    The best noodles on this rock is probably cake noodle. For some reason,
    Chinese restaurants on the mainland do not serve this dish. These are
    thin egg noodles that are fried on both sides and then cut into squares.
    The noodles are then served with Chinese dishes that have a lot of
    gravy. As far as I know, this is the only place that serves this
    favorite noodles.

    Dumb question, but how do you fry a noodle on both sides.

    Think about the name "cake noodle" and the description of cutting into
    squares.

    Isn't this precious. Seems as if Tom is threatened by the second-most
    inane RFC poster. Don't worry Andy, You're still tied for Second

    It's not a dumb question. I don't know. We like to fry a bunch at a time
    instead of a single noodle. The dish is called "cake noodle", not cake
    noodles or noodle cake.

    To me that looks like they treated the noodles like the shredded
    potatoes in hash browns. Cool looking method.

    The idea is pretty much the same. The noodles should be compacted and
    fried in a good amount of oil at medium heat. Add a few drops of sesame
    oil to the oil before adding the noodles. Flip it when browned. Cut into
    squares and top with your favorite goopy Chinese dish. Extra gravy please!

    Well, there ya' go. When I think of fried noodles, I think of deep
    fried, like in a wok. I know American Chinese restos use the term
    "pan fried" but that usually means pan fried after they've been
    boiled or other wise softened by some other means.

    Cake noodle is (are?) cooked 2 times i.e., boiled, then fried. The thing
    about cake noodle is that you can cut it into cake-like squares.
