Kanda, Udon & Soba Is my favorite cheap eats I like their UCLA Special A Beef Udon Bowl with 4 pieces of a Califonia Roll for under $5. Kanda is in the Mitsuwa Marketplace @ Venice and Centinela. Over the summer they have closed inconsistantly several days week. Frequently I walk in thinking they're open to see the lights off a sign showing the three days they are open that week. Now they're closed until October 6th and since abstinence makes the heart grow fonder, I'm looking a supplemental place close to Venice and Centinela. While I like the ramen @ Tampopo also in Mitsuwa, I'm jonesing for Udon and Soba. I will go as far as Sawtell and Santa Monica but I don't want to have to travel that far.
