If udon know, now you know…

We’re big fans of noodles in all their forms, but there’s a special place in our ramen bowl for udon.

Usually wheat-based, and much larger and rounder than their more soba, buckwheat cousins. They make an excellent accompaniment for hearty broths, and fiery ramen and if, like us, you enjoy your noods extra thicc we bring fantastic news…

A new Japanese restaurant, UDN has opened in the capital and it’s devoted to making and serving fresh udon noodles.

Udon love me

Signature udon-based dishes include UDN’s traditional ramen; curry ramen; and the chicken katsu, with more coming to the menu in the coming months.

Of course there are other things on the menu too, items like gyoza, edamame, tempura prawns, mochi balls and Japanese milk cake, but it’s the udon that takes central billing.
