A Takamatsu (Kagawa)-based company operating udon restaurants, Atton (あっとん), has developed halal udon products that comply with the Islamic law, by avoiding using meat, alcohol-based seasonings and such, to make it easier for anyone visiting from overseas to taste Sanuki Udon*1.
With a subsidy by the Kagawa prefecture, they have developed five types of halal-compliant frozen products, including kake-udon*2 and bukkake-udon*3. And they plan to add them to the restaurant’s menu in May.
*1 Sanuki Udon (讃岐うどん): a traditional udon noodle dish from Kagawa Prefecture, named after the prefecture’s old name ‘Sanuki’. It is listed as one of Japan’s three most famous types of udon noodles.
*2 Kake-udon (かけうどん): a hot traditional Japanese udon noodle dish in a savory broth.
*3 Bukkake-udon (ぶっかけうどん): a type of udon noodle dish that is one of the specialities of Okayama and Kagawa prefectures. Served by pouring a dipping sauce directly onto udon noodles.
