Steamed noodles (commonly refered to as chow-mein) are one of the most traditional oriental noodles. Stir-fried, crispy deep-fried, and even in soup, these versatile noodles can be used in a wide array of oriental recipes.
Usually served in a broth with wontons (hence the name), wonton noodles are known for having a springy yet crisp texture. In Malaysian cuisine, wonton noodles are boiled, drained, and dressed lightly with seasoned oil served as a tossed noodle dish. They can even be deep-fried into the shape of a bowl and used in popular Vietnamese dishes. Whether you dress them up or down, these versatile noodles have a place in most oriental cuisines.
