Glass noodles not rice vermicelli[edit]

A mistake in this article: "glass noodles" are not a synonym for rice vermicelli because they're not made of rice; they're made of mung beans. Glass noodles are actually cellophane noodles. Badagnani 08:39, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

Long rice[edit]

Apparently rice vermicelli are called "long rice" in Hawaii, where they're mixed with chicken for luau food. I wonder, does this come from the English translation of the Cantonese ? Badagnani 08:15, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Thai dish?[edit]

Is there a Thai dish made with rice vermicelli? We don't have Thailand listed in the regional dishes section. Badagnani 23:56, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Merge with Rice_Noodles[edit]

This article is practically the same as Rice_Noodles. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.190.253.149 (talk) 20:54, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

As someone mentioned earlier, the Rice noodles and Rice vermicelli articles contain much overlapping information, and the Rice vermicelli page claims that rice noodles are another name for rice vermicelli. -TinGrin 23:53, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

They're different, as one is an overarching category of noodles made from rice, while the other is only vermicelli (very thin). Badagnani (talk) 04:15, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
true, but seeing as the 2 articles contain mostly the same information, i still think it's a valid merge, or at least cleanup the 2 articles to reduce the redundant information, and clarify the difference. -TinGrin 19:27, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
I'd prefer cleaning up, and oppose to a merge. They are really actually different things. --supernorton 08:05, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose As stated above, rice noodles may take many forms, not just vermicelli. It's like the difference between pasta and spaghetti. Colonel Warden (talk) 12:29, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
yes they are certainly very two different things, in many places they might be the same but in many asian countries vermicelli is quite different, often eaten sweet with milk --User:anon 09:59, 2 January 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.211.220.221 (talk)
