Winter time is the time for Udon
Thoughts on cold weather and udon.
As winter starts here in the Northern Hemisphere (the best hemisphere, suck it Australia and your deadly everything) I cannot help but think thoughts of udon. Some folks go for chili and others go for a grilled cheese/tomato soup combo, but they’re wrong. With the exception of a hot toddy, udon is the best of all the cold weather meals.
Winter soups are supposed to knock off the chill in your bones and in your soul. Nothing does this quite like a good udon. Nabeyaki udon with that poached egg and the shrimp tempura takes a person somewhere magical.
Of course I will have my share of bowls of chili and a grilled cheese/tomato soup combos this winter but there is something about udon that just puts my soul at ease and makes the cold a little more bearable.
