In Hawai‘i, we eat a wide variety of delicious noodles. Noodles have been popular since Marco Polo first brought them back from China, and in the Islands we have adopted noodles from China, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, and Italy. With the Little Hawaiian Noodle Cookbook, you’ll find a collection of more than thirty of the best-loved island noodle recipes. There are delicacies like Cold Chinese Noodles with Cucumber and Somen Salad, as well as heartier fare like Pad Thai with Shrimp and Easy Macaroni Casserole. There are also local favorites like Easy Fried Saimin and Chicken Long Rice. Get ready to take a culinary tour of Hawai‘i’s cultures while enjoying some of the finest noodle dishes around.
