  1. I love udon noodles, Tegan! Stir-fried or in soups, yum :)! You say that you like bubble tea, check out some online stores, I am sure they'll send to Australia too. But I am very sure there must be some Oz-based online bubble tea stores.

  2. Me too, they would have to be my favourite noodles.

    I have looked before, to get bubble tea stuff. I might give it another go though, and see how I go. ^_^

  3. My elder gal loves Udon! shall try your recipe (w/o chilli thou...) the next time she wanna eat! Btw, is this 'kecap manis' a dark sweet sauce?

  4. Yes kecap manis is Indonesian sweet soy. I love it, I use it all the time it is so tasty!
