What are the different types of rice noodles?
There are loads of different types of rice noodles, but rice noodles aren’t to be confused with various glass noodle recipes (even though they look the same, they aren’t!). In terms of different types of rice noodles the difference mostly lies within the size and shape of the rice noodles. Rice vermicelli noodles for example are quite thin and long. Dried stick noodles are flat and long but are not quite as wide as other varieties of rice noodles. Chow fun rice noodles are flat, shiny and wide – these ones are commonly used in Chinese cooking.
You can also get rice noodles in a couple of different formats from your Asian grocer or local supermarket. The most common way to get rice noodles is in a dried format, you can normally find these at your local supermarket and won’t need to hunt too hard for them. The other way to get rice noodles is to buy them fresh (or make them from scratch), fresh rice noodles will generally be kept refrigerated and you will most likely have to peruse your local Asian grocer to get your hands on them!
