The udon noodles here are made perfectly. It has the perfect balance between chewiness and softness, which is pretty difficult to master. They have the traditional soup and the more modern fusion ones. I tried the Wakame Seaweed Udon and the Sea Urchin Cream Udon. Both were amazingly delicious! I even got a tempura soft boiled egg, which was made perfectly! The size of the order were pretty big. I would share the udon and order other appetizers, especially if you order a creamy udon. Just remember that those thick round udon noodles are made from flour, so it gets pretty filling.

These are probably the best udon noodles I've ever had. The texture of the noodles is excellent--they make them in house and you can see the noodle-man behind the glass, rolling and kneading away at the dough. I love the sides/toppings that you can add on, especially the temura soft boiled egg--yum! I have been here a couple times, and so far have found the more traditional soups/broths more to my taste than the more creative ones. For example: the one with uni butter sauce sounded delicious, but there was more cream sauce than we expected(closer to a broth) and the uni perhaps not of excellent quality that day. There's also typically a pretty long wait for a table.

Here is a great udon spot to stop on by if you're in the area. I tried the sea urchin cream udon which was a little too heavy for me but still delicious. My friend's mentai squid udon was much better and lighter as well. The noodles are also made in front of you if you get to sit in the udon bar area. Expect to pay around $9-$20 for your meal depending on the type of udon you get. Beer/sake were also plentiful. Parking is troublesome - look for lots on parallel streets rather than trying to find street parking. There also isn't any RSVPs here so you need to try and get here early or expect a bit of a wait, even on the weekdays (we waited for 45 minutes on a Wednesday for instance).
