Find me a person that isn't fond of noodles and, well – you can keep them. Not to be confused with pasta, although Americans tend to do so more frequently than I'd like, the two are united in that they're the ultimate comfort food. Spicy, salty, sticky and saucy, sling me a heaping bowl of noodles and you shall find me a content woman.
The concept itself is open to interpretation, and the noodle style will hinge on your latitude and longitude. Some will say the easier the better, after all they're a staple among uni students for good reason – all we know is that we don't discriminate. Noodles are pretty forgiving too, which is why they're a godsend mid-week or for those with limited experience in the kitchen.
So if you're in the mood for noodles, we've scored the internet and racked our brains for our favourite meals, to bring you 12 stand out recipes from across the globe. Thinking locally, there's the late Amy Chanta's beloved rendition from Chat Thai or Chaco Ramen's brothy ramen option. Designer Rejina Pyo teams up with her chef husband for their take on Korean-Chinese fusion classic Jajangmyeon while food writer Meera Sodha shares her vegan recipe for drunken noodles.
