Oroshi udon literally means grated udon. That’s not that the noodles are grated, but because some grated daikon radish (oroshi daikon) garnishes them. It’s very refreshing and many Japanese style fast-food offer this dish : chilled udon noodles, grated daikon and tsuyu sauce.
細うどん hosoi udon, thin udon noodles. They are said to be Kyoto style udon, but they are popular in Osaka too. I think thicker udon is better for Winter dishes and these are more refreshing.
The grated daikon radish, cut negi leek greens a few flakes of togarashi chili.
I made a fish flake dashi (recipe here), flavored with soy sauce and a little brown sugar. Served chilled.
卵焼きtamago yaki (Japanese omelet rolls) and okra.
Cream water melon. Taste is like the red one.
