Any noodle experts out there? Can you identify what kind of noodles these are?

Do these look like soba, chinese egg noodles, or something else?

    1. Possibly mung-bean flour noodles- commonly sold semi-dry in little "nests" in Taiwan like vermicelli...

      1. Looks like shanghai noodles to me too. Or possibly e-Fu. Don't think it's mung bean (aka glass) . Those are thinner and translucent.

        1. I think shanghai noodles, too. Definitely not soba, wrong colour.

          1. My vote is for Shanghai. I eat them fairly regularly. These look just a touch thicker than ones I buy, but have the same pale color.
