I could never stick to one particular cuisine, and on my blog you can find recipes from all over the world. l’m always open to new ideas when it comes to cooking, and always willing to try different dishes. I know some people find it difficult to try new food they are not used to, and even when they go on holiday abroad.

These people will only go the restaurants where their traditional food is served. I guess it’s personal choice, and there is no right and wrong here. My theory is, as long as the food is front of me smells and looks alright, l can give it a go, why not.

There is only a certain foods I could never ever try, and that is either too gross, or just too weird for my taste buds. Although that changes sometimes. I was only literally disgusted by the look of prawns/shrimps, and I just love them now. I guess one’s taste does change.

This lovely soup is so easy to make and so delicious. I love noodles of any kind, and l find udon noodles to be a lot less heavier than egg noodles, for example. When you finish your meal, you don’t feel so full that you are about to burst. So one extra point here. And then, everybody talks about how healthy miso soup is.

So again, another reason to enjoy this recipe. You can add any vegetables to it, or tofu, if that’s something you like and you prefer to keep the soup vegan friendly, otherwise feel try to add meat or seafood as well. It might not be a pure authentic Japanese recipe, but it’s so super yummy, you have to give it a go.
