Ebisu Udon Yamacho
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Though the classy interior and plummy riverside perch might suggest otherwise, this Ebisu noodle shop can fill you up for less than ¥1,000 a head. Yamacho's udon noodles, available either 'thin' or 'fat', are cooked al dente and served with dashi stock courtesy of the restaurant's namesake in Osaka, a local institution with a more than century-long history. Try the prawn tempura set or kujo negi (spring onions) udon, with some fluffy tamago-maki egg roll on the side (if you've got space for it). Yamacho is twinned with Ebisu's Kaoriya soba shop, and its interior follows the same format: subtle lighting, sparse décor and a communal, solid-wood table in the centre of the room.
