Situated in the older part of Kowloon’s residential district of Cheung Sha Wan, this cosy little udon shop serves a creative selection of special soup bases as their draw. Expect to get close to whoever is sitting next to you during peak hours.
Now, onto the food. The te-uchi udon in black sesame soup ($53) didn’t have much of a wow factor, but it was certainly sizzling hot. While the sesame flavour of the soup was nice, it was the thick coating on the udon that made every slurp a pleasure. The texture of the te-uchi udon was firm to the bite but I wonder whether they were mass-produced due to their uniform shape. The meat on the grilled pig knuckles in the udon set was surprisingly tender, juicy and fatty in all the right places.
While the combination of seafood and lobster bisque seemed appropriate, the flavours of the mussels, scallops and cuttlefish did not go well with the rich base of the te-uchi udon in lobster bisque with seafood ($49). The marriage of flavours was a bit too overpowering and was definitely a test for your palate.
