Tanuki Udon


Simple, but delicious Tanuki Udon is made with thick udon noodles in a dashi soup and sprinkled with tenkasu tempura flakes. Tanuki Udon is quick to make so it’s great to cook if you want real food but are short on time.

The most difficult part of this dish is its name! Known in Kanto, the prefectures surrounding Tokyo, as Tanuki Udon, it’s also called Haikara Udon in Kansai, the area around Osaka and Kyoto. It takes its name from tanuki ‘racoon dogs’ who are figures of fun in Japanese mythology.
