I feel like everytime I go to a restaurant that serves Chinese, there's a lot of rice and
noodles on the menu. I understand the rice, but what's up with the noodles?
What’s up Drew!
As far as us Asians liking noodles, this one’s pretty simple. Lots of mouths to feed requires an easy to make, easy to eat, super food. Add some water; Add some flour; Boom—you’ve got a noodle. Simple. Delicious. Economical. Pure Genius. Just ask an Italian how grateful they are that Marco Polo journeyed east and brought back pasta, instead of heading over to France and returning with some stale croissants, moldy cheese, and carbonated water.
