This book is dedicated to Jannice and her Tita who served me the finest noodle dishes I ever tasted in the whole of Asia from their wonderful family restaurant in Davao, Philippines.
This book is a true dedication to the amazingly mouth-watering variety of Asian noodle cuisines.
Noodle dishes are so versatile and yet so healthy; just look at the variety of ingredients and the way they are cooked to see for yourself. Fresh vegetables, healthy herbs and spices, seafood and meats such as beef, pork or poultry all cooked super fast to preserve the contents and enhance the flavors.
What is more, each Asian country has their very own version of noodle dishes that are totally unique and individual.

While cooking these beautiful noodle dishes, the smell and aroma of the spices wafting through the air can take you right back to the country the particular dish originated from.. miles away and experiencing the full richness of Asian cuisine.
With all the goodness that noodle dishes have to offer, it is not surprising that so many people like to eat them; from the very young to the very old.
