If you are still feeling peckish and prefer a fuller meal, slurp up authentic Taiwanese noodles from Qingshui and Jen Yuan.
The Qingshui Noodles ($11.90) are springy and tasty, not to mention preservative-free and non-fried.
The Qingshui Goji Berry and Red Dates Noodles (4s, 392g) offer an interesting flavour in its coupling of goji berries and red dates.
Boasting a delicate soup base that is also lightly flavoured with the two traditional Chinese items, it is immensely refreshing.
Throw in fresh vegetables and meat, and you have a soul-soothing hot meal.
In keeping with the mala craze, Qingshui Mala Noodles (4s, 460g) are numbing (ma) and spicy (la), providing a heavenly sensation for mala fans.
And when creating your own mala hot pot, choose Qingshui Noodles instead of the usual instant noodles as an ingredient.
Add your favourite seafood, meat and greens like beansprouts or cabbage to complete the meal.
Another popular option is Jen Yuan Beef Noodles ($9.90, one box a serving, including meat).
It boasts specially selected Australia AAA prime tendon meat and slowly braised fine bone essence which is complemented with special Taiwanese spices.
The braised beef is cooked for eight hours at a high temperature and then slowly simmered while the noodles are handmade, remarkably flavourful and extremely QQ (chewy).
What is more, the richly flavoured soup goes wonderfully with pickles.
