Lucky Noodles to Welcome the Year of the Tiger

February 1 marks the beginning of Lunar New Year, and as we celebrate the new year of the Tiger, we can't help but hope for a little extra luck in the coming year. Though the traditions of Lunar New Year are as diverse as the communities who celebrate—like China, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore, to start—there are some threads that weave through all, and by threads we mean noodles. In China, lucky noodles in the new year are known as longevity noodles. Often simply dressed with sesame oil and aromatic vegetables, the goal is to eat your noodle from start to finish without breaking, symbolizing a smooth year ahead. Sounds simple enough! If you and your family want to start this new year right with a little noodle luck, here are some of our favorite Asian-inspired noodle dishes from across the continent.
