Get your slurp on! August will be  jam-packed with noodles here at SBS Food. We've got a bunch of tasty new recipes plus stories to help you build up an appetite, from our ultimate guide to Asian noodles to a visit to Fukuoka's yatai (food carts) for a bowl of ramen. We'll share our favourite places to eat pho across Australia, give you some top tips for buying, storing and cooking with noodles and debate who owns the noodle, China or Italy. 

Hungry already? Our 31 new noodle recipes means one for every day of the month - but we're sharing them all from day one, so you can make whichever takes your fancy. We've got hot noodles, cold noodles, soup noodles and stir-fries. Check them out in our interactive map

Wondering which noodle is best in which dish - or what you could do with a new noodle you've spotted while visiting an Asian grocer? Check out our detailed guide to Asian noodles, which details 25 of the most common noodles you will see while shopping or dining. Plus find out why some noodles are alkalised, which noodles can be used without cooking, what the low-carb favourite, shiritaki, are made of, and more. 

 

If you want some inspiration before you dive into the kitchen - or head out for a bowl of noodle soup, perhaps  - catch some noodle action with our favourite SBS stars in these noodle videos

Or settle in for the night with a good film - here are six films where noodles have a starring, or cameo, role. All are streaming free, 24/7, on SBS On Demand. And on Saturday August 13, it's noodle night on Food Network Australia, starting from 7.30 pm.

Author and recipe writer (and occasional leader of tours to Japan) Jane Lawson explores the "other" Japanese noodles - we all love ramen, but there's so much more to Japan's noodle panorama.  And if you're planning a trip to Japan, become a menu master with Jane's guide to ordering noodles in Japan

Vegetarian pho with shiitake mushrooms

Pho is all about the broth and its seasonings, so a little effort and a good homemade stock will make a huge difference to this vegan- and vegetarian-friendly soup. Flavour balance will take a little trial and error, and as this recipe contains no meat or fish sauce, you’ll have to play around with the lime/hoisin/chilli sauce medley to find your perfect broth.

Pork and cucumber noodle salad

Quick, delicious and easy to prepare, it's sure to become a midweek favourite.
