Inspiration behind the Miso Udon Soup Recipe…
How did I come up with this miso udon noodle soup recipe? Every time I visit Detroit, I am obsessed with this chic noodle spot, Ima Noodle. Their noodles taste super fresh and they have a really unique combination of noodles with different types of broth. They are certainly vegetarian/vegan friendly and I love their ambient electronic music. I have ordered their Forest Udon and it is a dream to eat with their porcini mushroom broth, smoked mushrooms, rosemary, and garlic oil. Their dishes are highly inventive and always excellent quality. See my review here. I am always impressed with how every component is seamlessly tied together.
Chicago surprisingly does not have too many udon noodle spots – we are certainly a great city for ramen. When it comes to the noodle itself though, I have quite an affinity for udon so after a recent trip to H-Mart, I decided that I will recreate this ima gem in my kitchen and loved how it all turned out. However, you can purchase these ingredients online (see my Amazon storefront) if you do not have an Asian grocer by you. There are many different steps and components but it is not that challenging to make. You can multitask many of the steps.
