Servings: 2 servings


  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ cup onion sliced
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 blocks Sanuki udon noodles frozen
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil

optional toppings

  • 2 tbsp green onions chopped
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 egg yolks fresh


  • Heat cooking oil on a pan at medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sliced onions. Sautè the garlic and onions for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook until the onions turn slightly translucent.
  • In the meantime, bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the frozen udon blocks and let them thaw for about 1 minute. The noodles are ready when they start to unwind from the block form. Watch the noodles carefully, as it "cooks" pretty quickly. Drain the noodles and set them aside.
  • To the pan, add 1 tbsp dark soy sauce, 1 tbsp sesame oil, 1 tbsp oyster sauce, and mix to combine. Add the drained noodles to the pan, stir to coat the noodles well with the sauce. Transfer the noodles to a plate and enjoy!
  • optional: garnish with chopped green onions, sprinkle of sesame seeds and fresh egg yolk (only the freshest!)
