Udon is a dish that is much loved all over Japan, but Ise udon has been in the limelight lately. Tourist after tourist is surprised by how different this dish is to regular udon.
Ise udon is the local style of udon in Mie Prefecture, home of the Ise Grand Shrine. This simple dish features super thick noodles with a diameter of one centimeter! They are served in a black sauce and are covered with sliced green onions and raw egg.
Ise udon noodles are known for their extremely soft and chewy texture. They are said to be easy on the digestion of weary worshippers who have traveled from distant regions to come pay a visit to Ise Grand Shrine.
The black sauce is made using ingredients such as soy sauce and bonito fish stock. Its appearance suggests it would be rather strong tasting, however it actually slightly sweet. Please be sure to mix the sauce in well with the noodles before starting your meal. Enjoying the dish in this way will secure your place as an Ise udon connoisseur!
