Gome Udon

I got these good udon noodles the other day. A bag of them has three little serving-sized bundles in it, each wrapped in a little piece of paper. They’re good noodles, easy to make, and I like the portion size.

When I was making them for the first time, I was wondering what I should put on them. I decided to come up with a little sauce slightly based on the ingredients from my ramen recipe. I thought it was great, and after a couple iterations, I had measurements down for a recipe.

One note: the udon I use says to boil it for 7 minutes and then to rinse in cold water to stop cooking. I like to keep them hot, so I just do 6:30 and then drain it without a rinse. If you want to have them cold, the sauce is still good on that too.

As far as I know, this isn’t a traditional way to server udon or anything. According to Wikipedia, they’re often served in broth. But this sauce seems to work pretty well and the flavor is a good match, in my opinion.



  1. Boil the udon as instructed on the package (mine says 7 minutes).
  2. While cooking the noodles, mix all the other ingredients together in a separate container.
  3. After you’ve drained the noodles well, add the sauce and toss the noodles to coat them.
