Fat, tender, and chewy, udon are a Japanese wheat-based noodle served up in a host of dishes like noodle soups, stews, and stir-fries, or in their most elemental preparation: chilled with a dipping sauce (similar to how soba is often presented). For the best quality, look for udon in the fresh, refrigerated noodle section, though they're also sold dried as well.
