I like rice, as I usually have only one proper meal every day. But, I also take noodles and the variety when I hang out with my friends.

id rather have rice. cant live for a week without them. i always eat rice on breakfast then i could go for a day withou it. but a week without rice, i've tried it and i just couldnt get it out of my system. on where i live, people always eat rice three times a day. its part of our culture..

We rather have the rice because it's much heavier than the noodles itself and we practice eating rice since i was small then. and I eat noodles for breakfast with breads. sometimes if i wanted a soup noodles is the one we cooked if no available soup for the meal time.

That is a tough choice, but I think I would choose rice. I like rice with stir fries and curries much more than I do noodles.

It really depends on what the meal is. If there is a lot of gravy, then I would have rice. I do like my egg noodles though. Sometimes it just depends on my mood.

I like both rice and noodles, so it really depends on the type of dish or what I am in the mood for. When serving something Italain of course the best side would be a pasta. I make stir fry and such and that depends-sometimes I make it with rice and sometimes I serve drained top ramen noodles on the side. We also like the boxed side dish rice and pastas, like Rice-a-Roni.

actually, it depends on what we have on the table for a particular meal. usually, we don't cook noodle typed foods at home. so, we always have rice. but when we are able to cook noodles, we no longer have rice. there's too much carbohydrates already.

i like noodles but i prefer rice to be my main dish in my meals because it is much heavier in my stomach and cannot be hungry easily.

since rice is the main dish in my country and been eating them since i was a baby, i think i can't satisfy my hunger without rice in my meals. I can eat noodle but like what i have mentioned earlier, my hunger can't be satisfied without rice. I prefer to have a rice so i can stop eating after that meal. If i take a noodle, then i will have to eat another food again after that. I guess i prefer rice as it can help me to stop eating again after meals time.

My partner doesn't like noodles or any type of pasta, and since we generally make a meal together to share, we eat rice tather than anything made of pasta/noodle. I think i personally prefer rice anyway though, unless i'm having a chinese meal.

i'm addicted to noodles for some reason that i don't know why too.. Its widely available over here in my country. And if i have to eat rice as the only option. I would choose sushi. Plain rice seems too normal to me and doesn't quite attracts me.

If I had to choose between rice and noodles, I probably would choose noodles. Actually, I would prefer potatoes to either of those two items. I could live my whole life and probably not miss rice very much, although I eat it occasionally. I know that many people eat it for every meal and love it. It just isn't one of my favorite foods, especially, just plain rice.

It depends what meal of the day. I prefer noodles during lunch and rice at supper.
