Soba vs. Udon. Soba is made using buckwheat flour, while udon is made with wheat flour. Buckwheat gives soba noodles a slightly nutty flavor, and, although pure buckwheat noodles are available, many varieties include wheat as well
I also find they effect my body differently. I love Udon Noodles. (Check out my video on how to make Udon Noodles from scratch!) especially stir fried yum!
But Soba is a little easier for me to digest sometimes I have found over the years.
Soba and Broth with a little fried thing like Tofu has become a go to meal when I need a dinner done quick!
