Whenever I come to Portland, I eat a lot of Japanese food, not all of it good. There is one place, however, that has pretty good udon. It's called Hakatamon, and it's out in Beaverton, just off of Canyon Rd. It's in the strip mall thing that houses Coffee People and some place that says BEST TERIYAKI on the windows (maybe it's actually called Best Teriyaki, but wouldn't that be a weird name for a restaurant?). It's across from Burgerville and Fred Meyer's. Anyway, this little hole in the wall offers handmade noodles, and they have a pretty extensive menu.
