A very local udon shop near Kikukawa station(Toei Shinjuku line). I eat here often because, 1) it is delicious, 2) it is cheap to start off with and you get a 50yen discount coupon everytime, 3) it opens everyday and all day, 4) even when it is crowded, they won’t ask you to share tables with strangers, 5) I live (sort of) nearby. ^^;;; There are many good udon shops in central Tokyo so I guess there is no need to come all the way here just for the udon(there is nothing to see in Kikukawa), but anyway….
Udon with chicken dipping soup. Tori no Kara-age(fried chicken). Both are good.
For udon with dipping soup(which this place has a large variety), you can choose the udon from cold, atsumori(hot), or kama-age(see below).
Motsu-nikomi(giblet stew) udon. Fried aubergine.
Chikara udon(udon with mochi).
Motsu-jiru Udon(udon with giblet dipping soup).
Lunch set with motsu-nikomi, zaru-udon, and rice cooked with vegetables. Curry udon.
Tendon(not so recommended). Udon with curry chicken dipping soup.
Kamojiru(duck soup) udon (kama-age). Simmered squid and satoimo.
Chicken wing stuffed with minced pork. Very good!
Udon with sesame and spring onion. Udon with aubergine dipping soup.
Tenzaru soba(tempura is so-so). Tororo-Kombu(shredded kombu in vinegar) udon.
Motsu-nikomi. Tastes better when you order it on its own.
Udon with prawn dipping soup. Gyoza(don’t recommend this).
Yakiniku don(the beef a bit tough). Nikujaga(portion quite small).
Udon with salt and chicken dipping soup. I like this one the most out of all the udon with dipping soup. Buta no kakuni(the pork is not simmered enough and the portion is small for the price).
Lunch set with shumai and kitsune(aburaage) udon.
Kimchi udon, and I asked for natto and raw egg topping. I think this combination would be better for cold udon without soup. ^^;;;
