I wanted to go to little Tokyo for lunch, co-worker wanted noodles, what a good timing!? After we arrived the area, we saw ramen shops and noticed this one udon place. Well why not, udon we went.
We got regular udon with fried tofu and buttery udon with squid covered in cod roes. We also got a side of soft boiled egg and kakiage which was a deep fried ball of shreeded carrots, onions and seafood. The udon texture was great and broth was tasty. It was a shame there wasn't enough broth for the buttery squid because it was very thick, tasty, and made me crave for more.
Kakiage was delicious and fried just right. I would suggest to get it at any given visit. The soft boiled egg however was a waste. Bland and tasteless even though it was made perfect. Do not get that.
On my previous visit, I have also tried the sea urchin udon and believe it was an over hyped item. It was expensive, the uni portion was small, and the udon tasted water down with no trace of sea urchin flavor. Not worth of the ordering in my opinion.
Overall thought, if you love udon, you should go to this place for sure. If you don't know what udon is or having neutral thought about udon, try this place and you might be a udon fan after.
