Flat Udon Noodles are firm wheat noodles traditional to the Shandong region of China. Their mild flavor and sturdy texture holds up well against traditional Chinese or Japanese flavors and they are an excellent carrier for sauces.
Noodles are an essential element of Chinese cuisine. They have been enjoyed in China for thousands of years, with earliest written records dating back to the Han dynasty (206 BC-220 AD). It is believed that noodles similar to these were introduced to Japan from China around the 8th or 9th century.
Frequently served in a broth-based soup, this traditional dish is still widely enjoyed today, easily found at restaurants, train stations and street food carts across China and Japan. Traditional toppings include fish cakes, green onions, wakame and tofu.
In Japan, mid-autumn means traditional moon-viewing celebrations. This classic udon noodle preparation, which is named for the poached egg that symbolizes the harvest moon, is commonly served at these occasions. In this recipe, poaching the eggs in the dashi-soy-sake broth gives them a more intense flavor than water-poaching.
