For the most part, Evan is very anti-noodle. He seemed to forget that after trying this soup. He preferred using his hands to a spoon, so fideo ended up everywhere. This dish definitely made it to the top ten biggest messes Evan has created during mealtime. By the end of it, some fideo were even found in his hair.
