Chowhounds, please help.
My fiancee and I are desperate for good udon in the East Bay. We live in Walnut Creek so would prefer to stay in the general vicinity (eg Concord, Pleasant Hill, Orinda, Lafayette, Moraga, etc.)
Have been to House of Sake (horrible) and Tokyo Lobby (terrible) based on the feedback from Yelp. Those people wouldn't know good udon if you threw it in their lap.
Anyway, I researched the message board, but the Japanese restaurants people recommend are always for sushi. Neither of us like sushi, we want udon and can't find a decent Japanese restaurant that serves good UDON. Help! Please?
