Years ago, we enjoyed fantastic nabeyake udon served at a small restaurant in Costa Mesa, CA. The chef was from Tokyo, and he also hosted secret (invitation only) fugu dinners.
Evidently he was pretty well known, because the very small restaurant was regularly visited by busloads of Japanese tourists after their trip to Disneyland.
Is there a restaurant in San Diego or adjacent area serving this dish that is worth the drive?
I am hoping to plan a surprise wedding anniversary dinner for the hubby, who lived in Japan for some time.
