Does anyone know where to find Shanghai Noodles in NOLA? Looking for both a restaurant that serves them as well as a market that sells them fresh. Thanks

      Sorry, I don't really know what Shanghai Noodles are and I don't recall seeing it on menus. The results I found when Googling made it look similar to udon? Is that accurate? In any case, there are several Asian markets in the area and it seems like more are popping up all the time. The biggest and best is Hong Kong Market on the Westbank. That would probably be your best bet for a jumping off point.

        Thanks, yes they are similar to udon - fat noodles made from wheat flour. They are served in soup and are also commonly served in what is sometimes referred to as Shanghai Style Chow Mein whereby they are wok fried with pork, cabbage and various seasonings.

        I don't live in the area but am inquiring as a favor to a friend in NOLA who has been unable to locate them.

          at hong kong market (in the cooler section in the back-right corner of the store), you'll find a bunch of different varieties of noodles (not dry) packaged in clear plastic. i haven't checked them all out, but it wouldn't surprise me if what you're looking for is among them.
