comment How do I make home-made Vietnamese or thai rice noodles?
For pho, mostly, but also for a vaguely-thai noodle dish that we like as well - they have this sweet, vinegary noodle dish that has chilli, some kind of vinegar/lime lotus, generally delicious. That would also be good to recreate. I have some friends who have gotten used to authentic vietnamese food and they want to have it again.

Ok, after some research, I want to know if it's possible to make this at home, or if it is seriously far too much effort. :(

@Jefromi: I've looked at those, they look similar, however those videos seem to be flour-based, however I am sure the ones I am thinking of are rice-based. I have to get to bed, it might be worth closing this question until I have done some more research, however your suggestions have been very helpful.

comment How do I make home-made Vietnamese or thai rice noodles?
@Mien: There are a ton of questions relating to noodles, just not, as best as I can tell, specifically vietnamese or thai rice noodles. I am not asking about a recipe, but very specifically the noodle itself. Almost everything I see says: "Soak the noodles in water", but what about making those noodles themselves? THAT is what I want to cook. Part of the problem is that I don't actually know the proper name for these noodles... Except that they aren't Udon noodles.

Using sauce to make a sauce.. Novel idea.

comment What flavour can cut through salt?
In some places, however, even that "asian style condiment mix" will taste very salty.
