Tips for you
We've been to a lot of udon shops...In Tokyo, in skinny little Osaka alleys, and all around Kyoto. This place is good. It's not going to blow you away or anything, but it's honest and good. Good places make sure that the first person you see is the person making fresh udon. A lot of places have somebody in their window. In Japan, there is no reason to go anywhere for udon where they aren't making noodles to order. True to form, the first person you meet at Mentsudan is the guy making the udon. You arrive at restaurant, wait in line, place your order, wait for your udon, pick out some tempura, get a beer, pay, serve yourself some broth. This is easy and everybody is very friendly. And you can sit and eat without feeling like somebody is hovering for your spot (ramen bars).
The bomb dot com. I think this place is better than Marukame in Honolulu although I really enjoyed eating there also. The location is easy to find as others have stated. The prices are cheap cheap for the quality and quantity of food. The first time there my husband got the curry udon while I got the udon with beef. The curry udon was so good, we ate there again the next morning then again as the last meal of our trip. The udon is freshly made. They fill up your bowl with noodles and you can select your tempura toppings then pay. If you get the curry broth, they will fill it up for you. If you get the standard broth, there's a DIY fill-up and the station is next to the cashier. Both broth are good but we preferred the curry udon which contains shreds of tofu and beef. The curry broth is not too think and flavored just right...mmm delicious!
