Stretchy, translucent / Mental texture dissonance/ Potato noodle

Potato starch noodles are chewier, springier noodles that can become cellophane-clear among some brangs. I didn’t like the chewy springy noodles as an instant noodle. They will stick together and form a clump in your bowl, and you have to exercise caution not to splatter your face/clothes with broth when extricating noodles from the broth. Especially if you’re a fast eater and have no patience for resistance in noodles.
But for those who are unfussed and don’t care for trying to suck down a bowl of noodles at record time through your nostrils, the noodle texture is something new. If you’re game for a slightly chewier and elastic noodle, try the potato noodles.
