#1915: Itsuki Yuzu Sesame Sauce Udon

Here’s another one graciously sent by Casey P. of Hong Kong – thank you again! So this is udon – udon is a thick noodle with a nice chewy texture. It looks that this one is served cold! Andy’s going to try this one today and I’m really curious how he likes it. Let’s look and see what’s in this bowl!

The udon pouch.

The liquid sachet.

The sesame sauce – has a slightly peanut kind of scent.

The garnish sachet.

Looks like crunchy bits of tempura.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added barbecued pork. The noodles are nice and thick – and chewy. The flavor is excellent; kind of like a sesame sauce with a hint of vinegar which works extremely well with the cold udon. The topping adds a zest crunch. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901726012598.
