Noodles — one of my favourite foods in existence. In the anglosphere, they are extremely popular and common everyday food for everyday people — rainy days got you down? Noodles. Taking her out on a date? Noodles with dumplings. Feel bored with sandwiches? Try noodles with curried spice.
Their origins are unclear — it’s believed that the Chinese invented noodles thousands of years ago and eventually spread into the west through Marco Polo. It’s a popular theory in the west that is more myth than actual history. I believe many cultures throughout the world invented noodles not out of novelty but rather out of necessity: How else would you break up the monotony of eating the same ingredients over and over again?
So far I’m unimpressed with the noodles I have found in Russia — not spicy enough, often sweet and lacking in that rich broth — strange, given that this place seems to have the best soups I’ve tasted so far... Maybe the noodles here are allergic to being in bed together with good broth.
Hmmm... Noodles — they come in all shapes, sizes and colours. Different textures too. Let’s view some adjectives that describe some of their varieties:
Thin, Thick, Chewy, Dry, Wet, Yellow, White, Fine, Tasty, Nasty, Mediocre, Ribbon-shaped, Flat, Hard, Firm, Soft + Noodles.
English is a very verbose language often and there are so many combinations of words you can combine to describe just about anything. Like noodles... What type of noodles are the most representative of Russia? Can you describe them with even more adjectives than I’ve listed above? I bet you can next time you meet a native English speaker.
