How noodles have adapted to several Asian cuisines is a testament to their flexibility, and also serves as a way in which to gather insight on the cultures they encounter.

The resilience and malleability of noodles have allowed the dish to persist all throughout Asia, as well as act as a mirror of the nations they are incorporated into.
