korean food / seoul / 5 best udon restaurants serving chewy noodles – 2775

“Udon” is made from wheat flour, where bonito flakes are poured with broth, then eaten with various ingredients such as deep-fried tofu, seaweed, and green onions. If you slurp the fluffy noodles with the rich flavor of the soup, you can feel the chewy texture filling up in your mouth. When I think of udon, I think of plump noodles in hot soup, but there are many different types of udon. Boiled noodles are transformed into different types of udon depending on the temperature of the noodles, the presence or absence of broth, and the type of garnish, such as udon that is eaten cold and eaten without broth, udon that is grated without broth, and udon reinterpreted in Korean style. Here are 5 of the best udon restaurants that serve chewy noodles.

“Hinoyama” makes udon with a soup made from soy sauce that has been aged for 360 hours and homemade noodles made by maturing it for 11 hours. The signature menu is “flat udon hansang,” which consists of a wide variety of noodles, homemade tsuyu, tempura, and deep-fried sushi. If you soak large rectangular noodles in tsuyu and eat them, you can experience the chewy yet salty flavor.

“Katatsumuri” makes udon with homemade noodles made by Japanese chefs. The signature menu, “Bukkake Udon,” was completed by pouring soup flavored with the sweet flavor of bonito flakes on the well-rolled noodles. Adding radish, ginger, green onions, and lemon juice that comes with the soup will enhance the aftertaste. You can choose the temperature of the soup and noodles, so you can enjoy whatever you like.
