New Year Noodle Soup Thai Style

Kick off the New Year with a bowl of lucky noodles to symbolise long life. These ones are made of rice flour. Unlike most other Thai food, noodles are eaten with chopsticks. Both noodles and chopsticks are clear Chinese influences. Known as kuaitiao in Thai which is a direct loan from Teochew. As a child in rural Thailand a steaming bowl of this was a healthy and nutritious lunch and I can’t smell it or taste it without going back there.
