Why can't I get bread in an Asian restaurant?

OK...so at least in NY/NJ they usually bring a bowl of crispy fried noodles to dip in hot mustard or duck sauce when you sit down, but here in the great midwest that doesn't happen..if you ask for noodles, they bring you those La Joy fried cardboard noodles!!!!! and then they charge you $2.00...and in the Midwest, they DO NOT have choose 1 from column A, and 2 from Column B, for $21.95...so Draconian

Not that bread really goes with Asian food, or could it??? With my leftovers, i often make an Egg Foo Young Sandwich on a Kaiser Roll, or Bialy..my own creation!!! Try it sometime...it put's a McMuffin to shame

Can someone out there, explain this anomaly...why no bread??? is it all the noodle dishes??
What about Italian restaurants- they are all about the pasta, and dipping bread in the delicious sauces....I wouldn't mind some bread to dip in General Tso's Garlic Sauce...

Please advise....and consent
