Enjoy the delicious udon noodles and fun conversation with the shop owner!

Even though it’s located in a little bit of a complicated place, this small restaurant is always busy. Its fourteen seats at the bar, which is all it has, are always occupied. Customers don’t mind waiting in line to eat the udon (white noodles made from wheat flour) served here.

The home made udon is really nice with a chewy texture, and goes down smoothly. Although there are various choices on the menu, if you visit here for the first time, “Kijoyu(生じょうゆ)” would be recommended. It is a simple dish served with grated daikon white radish, chopped green onions and sudachi, a kind of Japanese citrus fruit. Soy sauce called Kijoyu is put on it before eaten.

Kijoyu is ¥600, and, usually, you can eat for under ¥1,000. Unfortunately, there isn’t an English menu, but the pictures of different dishes will help you to choose what to eat.

The chef, who also happens to be the owner, is friendly and humorous. Before he serves the dish to customers, he asks each person where they came from and whether or not they’re eating the food for the first time. If it’s their first visit, he shows them how to eat it correctly.

The chef says that when you eat “Kijoyu,” you should never mix the food until you finish eating. If it is mixed, it’ll become sticky and lose its good taste. However, when you try a different dish, you may sometimes have to mix it. It seems to depend on the dish.

Anyway, whatever you choose from the menu, you should ask him the correct way to eat it. He’ll be willing to show you with enthusiasm and humor. I think, in addition to the shop’s tasty and reasonably priced food, the chef’s amusing character must also be a big reason why this place has been popular for so long.

Please enjoy the delicious udon and lively communication with the chef!
