Udon

A curious marriage of East and West

If you've ever had a deep-fried pork cutlet in a Japanese restaurant, or a mild curry that looks more like a stew, you would have had yoshoku, a style of Japanese cuisine that takes its inspiration from the West.

How did you become interested in ramen? 'In 1984, I was running a restaurant-bar that served lots of trendy, young people - good-looking girls, cool-looking guys, nice couples. After work, I would go out to eat and very often I had ramen, at places where the customers were grumpy-looking middle-aged men.

Udon noodles with chicken

This is a dish I used to make frequently whenever I needed to cook something fast and didn't have much time to shop. The only fresh ingredients needed are the chicken and udon (Japanese thick rice noodles): everything else - onions, garlic, chilli sauce and seasonings - are staples in my kitchen.

Bottles of soy sauce, rows of fermented bean curd and other condiments are stacked neatly in the premises of Tai Ma Sauce Company in Kwun Tong. Most prominent on display, however, are large jars of fermented soya bean paste - or min si zeong in Cantonese - that owner Chau Wing-cheong takes pride in.
