The earliest Chinese noodles were not the strands of dough you see today. They were shaped into little bits, formed from bread dough, and then thrown into a wok of boiling water. That kind of noodle was called mian pian and is still eaten in China.

With different types of noodles made depending where you are in the world from China to the pasta noodles of Italy, noodles are one of the most popular ingredients in the world.
