BEST UDON NOODLES! Udon Noodle Tour of Tokyo Japan!

  • Published: 02 December 2018
  • I've done a lot of videos on different types of ramen, but I haven't paid much attention to the cousin of the ramen, Udon.

    The first place, Shin Udon, has incredibly fresh and chewy noodles, and if you get the cold udon, the dipping sauce has a great umami flavor to it. The tempura here is amazing as well, very tender, crunchy, and juicy.

    For the second place, I defiantly recommend Godaime Hanayama Udon. The Oni-Himokawa noodles at Hanayama Udon are unique. It's not the regular udon noodles you would typically get. It's a lot wider and flat. Now, I thought the first place has great umami flavored dipping sauce, but if you get the hot udon bowl, it has a very robust umami broth, which blew me away.

        Dude, no lie - I dig your videos. I’ve never had any authentic Ramen, but hope to try it someday. I’m hilariously stuck with the store bought kind, lol. I enjoy sushi, but the main kind I get - I can’t think of the specific name, but it’s a rolled bunch of sushi rice and inside that’s the nori sheet rolled up and inside that is whatever fillings. Good stuff.

                                  The "bear" is a tanooki, so closer to a racoon. They are often looked upon as woodland spirits. Think like Totoro.
