Ask the staff how to cook the Inaniwa Udon

It is the most important thing that you really understand how to cook this Inaniwa Udon. We’ve really carefully cooked according to the information. What we can still remember, are following:

  • Cook with plenty of boiled water (100g of noodles need 1 litre of boiled water)
  • Around 3 minutes (ask staff when buying) of boiling with strong fire
  • Don’t add cold water during boiling, even when water is going to spill out, instead, the fire should be weakened

You can see the changing of the noodle, they gradually become transparent. After boiling, the noodles should be put in cold water and washed.

This website should be a big help when cooking.
