Noodles are the staple food in many countries now (Chinese noodles, Japanese Noodles. Korean Noodles, Filipino Noodles, Vietnamese Noodles, and Italian Pasta). But where did they actually come from?
A 4,000-year-old bowl of noodles unearthed in China is the earliest example ever found of one of the world’s most popular foods, scientists reported today. It also suggests an Asian—not Italian—origin for the staple dish.
The earliest written record of noodles in China is found in a book dated to the Eastern Han period (25–220 CE). It became a staple food for the people of the Han Dynasty.
Noodle dishes can include a sauce or noodles can be put into soup and varies from region to region.
