With this easy recipe, you don’t have to travel far to enjoy delicious Asian noodles.

In the city of Hsinchu, in the northwest of Taiwan, the air is much windier and drier. Many rice-noodle factories are located there, as the climate allows the freshly made noodles to dry quickly. Taiwanese rice noodles are often labeled “Hsinchu rice noodles” on packages found in groceries, even in the U.S., and are exceptionally thin. One of the most famous preparations is a steaming platter of pan-fried rice noodles served at the family table for everyday and special occasions. While delicate, these rice noodles can stand up surprisingly well to a lot of tossing and turning in the pan without breaking or sticking as easily as wheat noodles would.
