Foursquare Tips

  • Amazing udon! They have a delicious braised pork belly appetizer!
  • Start out with some fine tempura, like the savory soft boiled egg fried in a light crunchy batter, before the main event: sea urchin cream udon ($15.95).
  • Sit at the counter so you can watch them make udon.
  • Their udon is amazing! You can see them make it in the kitchen!
  • Fantastic udon here. So unique and creamy. I definitely recommend this place for lunch or whenever you would like to eat here.
  • Hand cut udon is the star of the show at this Little Tokyo noodle shop that mixes Japanese and Italian flavors. 4 stars.
  • It wasn't on the menu but they have uni udon!
  • Get a table at the counter for some high quality udon entertainment.
  • Handmade udon!
  • All Udons are delicious except curry. The Toro and Pork Belly dishes are unbelievable
  • Wow! The most creamy and unique udon I've had! Sea urchin cream udon was so good! I enjoyed watching how udon was made too!
  • Recommended dishes: Fried chicken skin, grilled chicken with ginger sauce, scallop carpaccio, kake udon, zaru udon, plum shiso bukkake udon, cod roe butter squid udon.
  • Add green onion to everything.
  • Fresh noodles! Highly recommend the tempura add-ins.
  • Like other's said, their udon is AMAZING!
  • Mintaiko Squid Udon was really good!
  • I suggest the seafood ramen. It has a tomato base! Delicious
  • Bomb udon! Tried the Uni udon! I didnt think I would like the creamy broth, but it tasted very light and smooth! Went close to dinner opening and on weekday so wasn't too crowded!
  • Eat at the bar to watch them make the udon noodles by hand, and order the shrimp tempura (simple is best); the uni udon is really creamy and conceals the nuance of the uni taste
  • Liquid sin. Seriously. So indulgent.
