I love noodle soups, especially asian varieties (Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian - you get the idea), so I was looking forward to trying this place, especially after reading good things about it. I was looking forward to trying the takoyaki. When I ordered I was told that the takoyaki would take over 25 minutes to prepare. I thought that was stange as it's supposed to be a specialty.

So I had the kake udon. It was a huge disappointment. The broth was flavourless. I has to add tons of soy sauce and shichimi-togarashi to get an flavour at all. The toppings were basically non-existant. A few bits of tempura, green onion, and the biggest joke of all, two tiny slices (i mean about 0.5 mm thick) of the fish cake. The udon was good which didn't really matter because these was so little flavour in the broth.

I will be back to try the takoyaki, but never again their noodle soup. It sucked.
