According to the waitress at Tombo, they are closing their San Mateo udon shop in late October. Apparently, the hubby/chef and her are retiring and moving to Las Vegas. My Japanese isn't that good but my mom-in-law from Japan and my wife starting talking with the elderly waitress when she told us the bad news. I know they have a reputation for bad service, but we've never had a problem there the 3 years we've frequented the place. Their udon will be missed.
