Finished (click to enlarge). Added bbq pork, soft egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, and black sesame seeds. Noodles came out pretty decently – broad, flat udon. The broth was odd – a little sweet, a little spicy, but very earthy. Fascinating. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901734036739.
