at Nadai Fujisoba
-SM Aura Premier, Taguig-
with W and the Boyz
Nadai Fujisoba has become a family go-to. Only for lunch on the weekend, including today, or for an after-school snack. Less so these days (as we’re mostly done setting up the new pad and so not shopping as much), but we still drop by whenever we’re in the mall.
Whereas the Japanese term “hiyashi” refers generally to anything chilled, it’s typically applied to cold broths in a culinary context.
At Nadai Fujisoba, udon noodles nonpareil. All in the texture, each bite perfectly chewy, almost rubbery, but in a good way. For the first time, I’m realizing that udon noodles aren’t merely mushy/doughy carriers for warm broth and other components, but could and should, and would as they do here, stand out as the main attraction in themselves.
