Udon, Indian movie food?

N.Watanabe | Sep 9, 2001 10:41 PM

Two questions (or challenges) for everyone, if I can't get an answer here, I don't know where it'll come from:

For the longest time I've been trying to find fresh, authentic Japanese Udon noodles. The packaged variety you find in the states is always too mushy. (Udon should be firm and slightly chewy) Does anyone know a place that either makes it, or imports the fresh kind, frozen maybe?

Thanks in advance.

Second, I caught one of those weird SJ Mercury news ads on TV, the ones where people read from the paper, all shot in kind of grainy black and white. It seemed to feature some kind of Indian movie theatre, and they showed a quick shot of the lobby, in which there seemed to be some kind of snack-bar serving Indian food. Anyone know if this place actualy exists, and where it is?
