Looking for a great way to start off your healthy eating regime in 2018 and begin a detox but don't want to give up your favourite foods? Getting into noodle dishes could be exactly what you're looking for. The Asian cuisine is not only bursting at the seams with flavour but it is also packed with yummy goodness that will make you feel so much better. Japanese takeaways are on the rise in Dublin and Japanese food lovers seeking an alternative to sushi may find what they're looking for in a noodle dish. Popular in Thai dishes as well, and here we have selected some of the best options in Dublin just for you.
1. Seafood Yaki Soba
Fujiyama on O'Connell Street is a bustling Japanese eatery that serves up a wide array of options. It is famed for its unique and mouth-watering sushi selections but, for those looking for a healthy and wholesome alternative, cast your gaze over to the noodle section. The Seafood Yaki Soba is the standout option here for us. The wheat flour noodles are perfectly seasoned with oyster sauce and garlic before being greeted in the wok by fresh and succulent seafood. This Japanese classic is a treat for the taste buds and a must-try for those looking for a healthy noodle dish.
2. Pad Kee Mao
Pad Kee Mao is a stir-fried noodle dish from Thailand that is absolutely packed with awesome flavours. The offering at Thai Orchid uses egg noodles, accompanied by Thai basil, sweet pepper, fine beans, garlic, and lots of chillies. All these bold ingredients are fried together in a large wok and mixed with oyster and fish sauce to add that extra bit of Asian flavour. This is certainly not one for the faint-hearted, as the chillies bring a serious amount of spice to the dish. It is extremely healthy, though, and you'll be feeling good inside for the rest of the day.
3. Chicken Teriyaki Soba
Similar to the offering from Fujiyama, Kuraudo restaurant on Townsend Street has a stir-fried noodle dish that will have you salivating at the sight of it. For this version of the Japanese noodle classic, the chef prepares a bed of egg noodles with onions, bean sprouts and peppers then covering them with the deliciously sweet and succulent flavours of teriyaki chicken. This combines two excellent dishes in perfect harmony.
4. Phad Thai Noodles
Phad Thai is easily one of the most famous Thai dishes because it suits a wide range of palates. Unlike some of the more spicy and hot options from the Southeast Asian country, this noodle dish only packs a punch if you want it to – it comes with dried chilli flakes on the side that the customer can add. The dish itself has a sweet tamarind base and the noodles are held together with scrambled eggs. At Opium, the standard dish is vegetarian-friendly and is topped with bean sprouts, scallions, and roasted peanuts. This is an aromatic and vibrant way to enjoy some healthy ingredients held together in a classic, world-renowned noodle dish.
