There’s nothing more comforting than a hot bowl of noodles. A specialtydish from Nagasaki, different regions in Japan also have their own local variations of chanpon noodles, which consists of a hot,fragrant broth served with unique noodles, a variety of meat/seafood and vegetables. In Japan, slurping loudly while enjoying noodles, a sound known as “zuru zuru”, is encouraged to enhance the aroma and flavor of the dish while paying compliments to the chef!
