While ramen is undeniably still the moost popular Japanese noodles in Singapore, there are also oodles of good udon and soba to be had.
Over at Tamoya, a udon specialist from Japan, the famed Sanuki Udon ($7.30 for large) is served. The simple soy sauce broth was clear and savoury. Perfect with the thick, chewy strands of udon that had such a lovely bite. A real delight to slurp on!
DIY and customise the toppings of your udon at this self-serve station. I added wakame, preserved plums, spring onions and ground sesame seeds. :p
There was also a line up of Tempura (from $1) to choose from but it was average. Added variety to the meal though their star was clearly udon.
饭人, consider adding an Onigiri (from $1.60) or two. Moohaha.

Chew On This: Apparently 3 types of flour are blended to give Sanuki udon its characteristic chewiness.
