More than simply food, noodles have been an essential dish in Asian culture for centuries. With a vast range of shapes, sizes, lengths and textures available noodles play a significant aspect in both our meals and our culture. At Nomz we are delighted to showcase noodles which we have carefully curated to best pair with our recipes. All our noodles can be paired with any soup, but we've included our recommended pairing below each noodle description.
Egg Noodles (撈麵)
: Our original Nomz noodles are a staple in Chinese cooking because of its versatility. These thick and dense egg noodles are widely used and are not only paired in soups, but also stir-fried, pan-fried, or blanched and tossed in sauce. You simply can't go wrong with them. Best paired with Chicken Shiitake soup. Ingredients: water, wheat flour, gluten, salt, potassium carbonate, sodium carbonate, b-carotene. Click here for nutrition facts.
Flat Noodles (小寬麵)
: The Asian equivalent to the Italian fettuccini. These slender and flat noodles have a springy texture that is irresistible. Commonly paired with noodle soups, the shape of the noodle helps absorb broth effortlessly to provide a lovely slurping experience. Best paired with Chicken Shiitake Soup. Ingredients: Wheat flour, water, salt. Click here for nutrition facts.
Thick-Cut Noodles (刀削麵)
: Also known as knife-cut noodles, these noodles are a specialty of the Shangxi province in China. They are uniquely thick, providing maximum chewiness and the perfect al dente texture. It wouldn’t surprise us if you deeply fall in love with them (we have ourselves). Best paired with Chicken Shiitake Soup. Ingredients: Wheat flour, water, tapioca starch, salt, potassium carbonate.

Glass Noodles (잡채/Gluten-Free)
: Made of sweet potato, our gluten-free glass noodles are the perfect light complement to our soups. This noodle becomes translucent when cooked, earning its "glass" title, but don't let this fool you into thinking the texture is sub-par. After preparation the glass noodle gives a wonderfully springy and slippery texture that works wonders in dishes and soups that contain contrasting textures. Best paired with Brisket Radish Soup, Berkshire Lotus Soup and Spicy Chicken Soup. Ingredients: Sweet potato starch. Click here for nutrition facts.
