Udon know ’til you try.

September 2, 2016

I should take that advice myself!  If you know me, you know that I’m not very adventurous with trying different foods and I’ll take dessert over steak and lobster, any day 😉  But I like to consider myself an amateur foodie since I do love eating even if it’s the same dish over and over (yes boring, I know) and I WILL TAKE PICTURES 😀

I am a huge fan of udon, as it is such a simple yet yummy dish.  The noodles are thick and somewhat chewy- or that is how I prefer it.  It can be served in a hot broth or served cold with a dipping sauce, and may come with toppings such as scallions and tempura flakes.  There will usually be different types of tempura options and musubi’s (rice balls) served a la carte to go with it.  I like my udon both hot and cold, but with Hawaii’s humid weather it’s been so refreshing to eat it cold.  There are 2 restaurants on Oahu that I favor which are Marukame Udon, located in Waikiki, and Iyo Udon, located in Ala Moana Shopping Center.  Both are very good, however, Iyo Udon is a much more convenient location for me.  The portion sizes are very generous and you can’t go wrong with their prices!  If you’re ever at the mall and need to get your udon fix, check them out 🙂

Xo, Mari
