    BirdyBaker's Note:

    Literally translated, tsukimi means "viewing the moon". The egg in this dish represents the "full moon" surrounded by "clouds" of noodles. It is traditionally served in the autumn but I love it all year long. For some reason, I find it very

      Sounds like it should be a good recipe. But I worked in A noodle shop 85 hrs a week my first two yrs in Japan and there`s aneasier way to cook the egg. We woul never have used an oven. Place the noodles in the bowl and make a small nest in the center for the egg. Crack the egg into it on top of the noodles. And pour the boiling stock slowly into the bowl around the egg. Don`t pour the broth directly on to the egg, that`ll spread the egg all over. If you do it right the broth will cook the eggwhite making it look like the clouds around the moon. And the yolk will be soft the way we Japanese like it.

      This was very good. I left out the sugar, though. I tried pouring boiling broth around the egg as another reviewer suggested, but it did not work. I wound up putting the soup in the oven, as instructed, and it cooked fine.
