Awesome veggie udon restaurant

How often do you come across an udon place that is completely vegetarian and make their noodles fresh in house? Well, this is certainly a first for me. Their whole menu is vegetarian with eggs and dairy clearly indicated. All side dishes are vegan. How cool is that?

Our lunch was fantastic. We ordered two hot udon and four sides. The udon broth was light and clean but flavorful; the noodles were handmade in house and got a nice chew to them. As for the sides, I'd highly recommend the black sesame tofu and the veggie-miso pancake rolls. The tofu had a creamy and custardy texture that was just lovely; the black sesame was assertive and slightly bitter, which went really well with the mildly sweet sauce. The rolls were straightforward—veggies wrapped and rolled up in a flour flatbread, smeared with a touch of miso, and cut into bite sizes. So simple, but so delicious. All this food cost only about 25 USD including 10% service charge. What an amazing value!

The location was also very good; it's super easy to get to and is right in a hip neighborhood full of independent shops and restaurants. The wooden furniture and minimalistic décor made for a peaceful and relaxing aura. The staff was knowledgable and forthcoming with suggestions. This has got to be one of my favorite dining spots in the city for casual grub thus far.

Pros: great food, good value, location
