Perhaps there is no single birthplace; noodles and flat, unleavened dough wrappers seem to have appeared spontaneously in different cultures, evolving quite naturally from thin, quick-cooking griddle breads that are found almost everywhere. Besides being easy to store and keeping well, noodles cook quickly, saving energy, always a consideration in fuel-scarce cultures.
Fast, cheap and quick! I’m a sucker for Asian noodles – hot, sticky or cold – and you can use any kind of noodles you have on hand – fettuccine, spaghetti, ramen, anything! They are seriously easy to make and you can have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes!
Every country across the Pacific boasts its own slurpable specialty. The joy of the Asian noodle bowl – As the street-food craze spreads across America, more folks are learning the pure fun of chopsticking into a bowl of noodles.

This noodle bowl – Asian Garlic Noodles is based on both street fare and homey comfort classics. Keeping true to the soul of the dish: all those spicy, salty, sweet, sour, and slurptastic thrills.
