Interesting Noodle-Based Dishes

Japanese cuisine is a festival of flavours, ranging from miso sauce to beef salads, fried chicken to deep-fried vegetables dunked in broth. It derives its flavours largely from the bigger, most vast platter of Asian cuisine.

It’s not just vegetables and meats with Asia. The continent loves its noodles, too. The people who dwell in this amazing continent get to enjoy some fine food, most of it centred on various noodle-based delicacies.
