1. Tseng Noodles Scallion with Sichuan Pepper
These noodles may look simple but the Taiwanese instant noodle brand has topped many 'best' lists all around the world. The noodles are handmade and sundried, which gives it a chewy texture. The seasoning – red scallion oil infused with Sichuan peppers – is spicy but not overwhelmingly so, and is palatable enough for someone who can't take heat. The noodles soak up the sauce perfectly and pack a punch with every bite.
