Udon, Wheat Noodle (うどん)

Udon is a very popular cuisine among Japanese people.
It is noodle from wheat flour, and is a little thicker than 
Soba noodle.
Udon is eaten either from bowls filled with hot soup, or by dipping it into 
special soup as in the case of Soba.
Of these two, former is much more common.
Japanese people like to put minced green onion and red paper in the soup 
as spice. 
In Japan, if it is not impolite to make natural noises when you slurp up 
the noodles.

The recipe is that the flour is kneaded for some time, and then rolled out and cut 
into long strips. 
The noodle is finished by boiling them in hot water.
