Although today’s celebration of National Noodle Day is for the US, the noodle and all its different sizes, taste and sauces is still one to be commemorated. Especially in Dubai, where the most international range of cuisine exists.
The flavour, slurping swoop of each noodle and the process of eating it is a whole thing.
So whether you like egg, ramen, udon, soba or even the pre-packed noodles- there’s a lil something for everyone.
