Miso Nikomi Udon
Miso Nikomi Udon is one of Nagoya's most famous comfort foods. Ask anyone on the street and they will tell you that they know about the dish and love it. So, what makes the Miso Nikomi Udon so special than normal udon dishes in Japan? The answer would be the broth. The broth is made with Nagoya's famous Haccho miso, which has a stronger taste that white miso. This dish is very salty because the broth itself is made with bonito, soy sauce as well as Nagoya's famous Haccho miso paste. The soup is very thick, almost like a paste with various vegetables, rice cakes, chicken and egg as toppings. Locals usually have a side bowl to use as an eating vessel because eating the noodles in the hot clay pot is dangerous. Another thing locals like to do is order a side of white rice while they devour this dish and eat it like a side dish to the rice. This is somewhat a commoners' food and is a must try if you want to have what the locals have!
