You don't make udon anymore!

"You don't make udon anymore...", YK said while slurping on udon at the Japanese restaurant that day.

I didn't know he likes udon so much. I usually avoid it because of the starch overload. Those fat rice noodles will fill you up quickly, leaving no room in the tummy for other yummy Japanese sushi.

Now I remember how I used to make udon for the kids when they were younger. YK's going to be surprised when he wakes up this morning. I made yakiudon - stir fried udon with loads of bean sprouts, fish cake, egg, shrimp and spring onions. I seasoned with teriyaki sauce and a dash of mirin (Japanese rice wine).

I'm beginning to realise all my noodles end up looking somewhat similar!

Now he can't say I don't cook udon anymore.
