Did Toraya "downgrade" their Nabeyaki Udon?

Lagrangian | Jan 13, 201602:47 PM    

I was just at Toraya in Arlington and had their Nabeyaki Udon soup for the first time in over a year (the weather compelled the choice :)). While the broth was as tasty as I remember and the noodles cooked to perfection, I was rather disappointed in rest of the contents of the soup. It did have the usual two tempura shrimp, the egg, and a couple of those pink & white fish "cakes". However, there were only three very small pieces of chicken and the only vegetables in it were a bit of scallion and the cut up end of a green stem of something. Fewer noodles and less broth than I remember, too.

Last time I had it I felt almost full to bursting when I had finished it but nothing like that this time.

Was it always like that and I'm misremembering the past, or are they cutting back on the ingredients in the soup?
