Noodles 面条 (miàn tiáo)

Chinese cooks use a variety of noodles. The chewy texture of fresh round noodles is great in soups in which you want the noodles to soak up flavor; fresh noodles can be purchased at Asian grocery stores. Japanese udon noodles are a good substitute for fresh noodles. Dried Asian egg and rice noodles can be bought at most supermarkets and stored unopened for up to 1 year.
