Udon West review

Ricky | Apr 30, 2005 10:56 PM

I checked it out today with my wife, who happens to be from the region of japan that Udon West is from, after seeing an ad in the Japion japanese newspaper stating all ingredients are shipped from japan.

I had the nabeyaki udon and she had the niku udon. Surprisingly very good, the broth was obviously not from a powder. Veggies were fresh and not from a powder. The udon was very springy, very chewy , not chewy and absorbed the broths very well. They also serve curry and other donburi dishes.

They also served chicken rice onigris, but they were cold premade, and nowhere near as good as the ones in kyushu. But my wife likes the udon better than the place a few blocks away from her house in japan.

We were also surprised that the chefs were japanese, as well as some of the waiters.

Prices were pretty good, about 6-8.50 for a bowl of udon, 3 bucks more gets you a mini donburi of either curry rice, oyako don, katsu don, or gyudon.

I think we will be regulars when we dont feel like cooking every other week.
