I can’t believe I haven’t shared my recipe for
The Sushi Chef’s Noodles
Seriously, this is one of my son’s absolute favorite dishes in the world.
What is it?
It’s the noodles we get when we go to “sushi.” Which to the rest of the world is usually called “Japanese steakhouse,” but in my family goes by the name sushi.
Why do we call it sushi? As the story goes, I love sushi. Love it. Love it. There’s only one problem. As a restaurant experience, waiting for a platter of artfully arranged raw fish takes time, especially in the quantities in which I like to order it. Sadly, the amount of time it takes to make the sushi far outweighs the patience of a typical one, two, three, or four year old.
Enter Japanese steakhouse and the fire, the onion volcano, the banging on the stove with wooden sticks, etc. All of that is more than enough excitement to keep a little one entertained for as long as his father needs to wait (un)patiently for his sushi.
Even better, my son will actually eat the food at the Japanese steakhouse, including the noodles, which he loves so much we always have to order extra. Here then, is the recipe for those noodles.
