NAGASAKI CHAMPON (Nagasaki-Style Vegetable and Seafood Noodle Soup)
Nagasaki Champon is a regional noodle soup from Nagasaki Japan. One of the most plausible theory suggests that the dish was created based on a Chinese dish at a Chinese restaurant in the city in order to serve Chinese students with cheap and nutritious meals. Now the dish is enjoyed nation-wide. Champon is similar to ramen but it is topped with loads of vegetables and seafood simmered in its broth and the noodles are twice as thick as those of ramen's and have a softer texture. Champon's cloudy broth is typically made by boiling chicken and pork bones for hours but this recipe uses milk to make a cloudy broth, which is a good substitute for the cloudy broth. The dish is ideal when you want to have an easy and balanced yet satisfying meal.
