I wanted to make a fried Udon Dish, but I could not find Udon noodles for the life of me. I checked the stores close to me and the closest thing I could find was Chow Mein Noodles. I know they are not even close, but they worked great. If you can find Udon feel free to substitute it instead of the chow mein. No matter what noodle you use, this dish is fantastic.
The noodles were fried just long enough to give them some color from the pan. Fantastic!
