BEST UDON NOODLES! Udon Noodle Tour of Tokyo Japan!

  • Published on Dec 2, 2018
  • I've done a lot of videos on different types of ramen, but I haven't paid much attention to the cousin of the ramen, Udon.
    The first place, Shin Udon has incredibly fresh and chewy noodles, and if you get the cold udon, the dipping sauce has a great umami flavor to it. The tempura here is amazing as well, very tender, crunchy, and juicy.
    For the second place, I defiantly recommend Godaime Hanayama Udon. The Oni-Himokawa noodles at Hanayama Udon are unique. It's not the regular udon noodles you would typically get. It's a lot wider and flat. Now I thought the first place has great umami flavored dipping sauce, but if you get the hot udon bowl, it has a very robust umami broth which blew me away.

    How do you eat so much food without gaining an inch? I love watching all the food you eat but I wonder how you do it. It seem impossible to eat that much in one day. Your health got to crash

    Tried Udon for the first time today! I love watching your videos, they make me crave all the food you eat. A Japanese fusion restaurant opened recently in my town, and I was finally able to try Udon! I have to admit jealousy about how much you can eat though, I ordered gyoza (6) and beef udon, had to take home half of each 😂 at least I have leftovers for a couple days!
