Additional Information:

If you could not find udon noodles, you can substitute with spaghetti cooked according to package instruction before frying the noodle. If you don't have Mentsuyu sauce, just substitute with soya sauce. I sometimes don't have the bonito flakes, and do without it. You can also add tofu or other vegetables to your liking :-)
