Finally, real temaki [handmade] udon comes to NY. Udon has great firm slightly chewy texture, not soggy like you get in most places. Lots of different options for toppings and condiments but very much like a udonya in Japan so don't expect nabeyaki udon here. Here it is all about the noodles which are great cold as well as hot. If you have not had udon in Japan then you just have to be adventurous and try different things. The staff will help you here. Mentaiko [fish egg] topping is great way to go. Lots of tempura and kaarage fried toppings available such as shrimp, chicken, eggplant, etc although they don't have the tempura soft boiled egg anymore after review in NY Times which is too bad. Sometimes, the tempura has been sitting under the heat lamp for awhile so not always the best but if you time it right then can be great but again, it is all about the noodles.
