Udon, (or udong as most Koreans say) is a great noodle dish that can be enjoyed morning, day, or night. It is a popular dish in both Korea and Japan (where it originated), and you can find this tasty, instant version in most Asian grocers. When we get tired of the usual ramen variety, we like to change things up with udon noodles because of its silky texture and flavorful broth. To make it a full meal we like to add on extra toppings like fish cakes, shrimp, mussels, seaweed, egg, and scallions. And what is especially great about this dish is that you can create a satisfying meal within minutes (same as making instant ramen noodles) and not worry about all the time and hassle of prepping.
