Good udon can be hard to find, and the desire for an udon fix cannot always be satisfied by soba. Rokko has great udon–thick and chewy, says Wendy san, and comparable to noodles she had in Nagoya. Clams in broth are also delicious. The tempura is decent, and the serving sizes are very generous–a dinner special features a massive slab of tonkatsu, tuna sashimi, rice, miso soup, and salad, all for $10.75. They have nice small plates, too. Two appetizers, two entrees, an order of sake and an order of beer will run you about $50 before tip.
