Have you been feeling low on energy lately? Come to our Japanese restaurant in Bellevue to try a bowl of udon! These noodles are legendary in Japan for their ability to deliver a quick and long-lasting supply of energy.
The secret to udon is its easy digestibility. Under a laboratory setting, these noodles have proven to dissolve in digestive enzymes much faster than other pastas, and a full three times the rate of beef. So quick is the digestion process that you don’t have large amounts of blood rushing to your stomach; this allows heat to remain in the extremities. Udon is therefore popular in Japan as a cold-weather meal, or as a meal for people battling a flu, as the unique readily-available energy of the noodles are able to give the body the power it needs without taking blood away from the areas that need it.
