Thanks for this. I've been considering midsize with maybe one wrap for the comfort offered my arthritic hands. I have them in wedges and I like them a lot. Plus I used them years ago, and couldn't see that I blocked shots right because of them. Nor do I find standard grips help me "roll" my hands. Best, -Marv
Ramen and udon specifically describe the type of noodle in a dish. It's just like spaghetti or penne in an Italian dish.
There are different ways to prepare the same noodle and similar ways to prepare different noodles.
Well technically you wouldn't call something just "udon" either. Typically a description of the dish would come with the name of the noodles, for example yaki udon is stir fried udon and nabeyaki udon is a soup dish. But if you call something udon, it means there's udon in it.
I didn't know if the dish drifted away to a different dish type based on other aspects of the dish.
I suspect some people would think Udon doesn't just have to be made with Udon noodles, but other traditional ingredients.
I'm just poking a little fun, Matt, but ramen is a type of noodle, not just a generic name for noodles in soup.
It's a little like making linguine with clam sauce and calling it spaghetti with clam sauce.
