If you like Kimchi and ‘Takuan’ (Japanese Pickled Daikon), the combination of Kimchi and ‘Takuan’ must be irresistible. ‘Kimu-Taku Rice’ is very popular in Japan and I love it. Today I mixed the Kimchi and ‘Takuan’ with Udon Noodles. Udon Noodles can be replaced with other noodles of your choice such as Somen, Capellini, Soba, Rice Noodles, OR Egg Noodles.


1 Serving


1 serving Noodles *Today I used Udon Noodles
1/2 Spring Onion *finely chopped, save some for topping
1 Egg *cooked in your favourite way, find ‘Onsen Tamago’ recipe
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
1/2 teaspoon Toban Djan (Chilli Bean Sauce) or Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso) *optional
2 tablespoonfuls Kimchi
3 to 4cm ‘Takuan” (Japanese Pickled Daikon)
1 teaspoons Soy Sauce *plus extra
Toasted Sesame Seeds

  1. Combine Sesame Oil and Toban Djan (Chilli Bean Sauce) or Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso) in a mixing bowl, add Kimchi, ‘Takuan’ and Spring Onion, season with Soy Sauce, and mix well.
  2. Cook Noodles according to the instruction, rinse under cold water, and drain well. Add to the bowl, and mix to combine.
  3. Cook an Egg in your favourite way. I cooked it in the microwave. It took 50 seconds. Find the method here.
  4. Place the ‘Kimu-Taku’ Noodles in a serving bowl, add the Egg, sprinkle with saved finely chopped Spring Onion and Toasted Sesame Seeds, drizzle with Soy Sauce over the Egg, and enjoy.
