Kamakiri Udon

The recently opened Kamakiri Udon is the sister shop of Niwakaya Chosuke, an izakaya in Yakuin whose handmade udon were so popular as a meal finisher that it decided to open a dedicated udon and donburi (“rice bowl”) shop. The noodles, which are made in-house from Itoshima flour, are soft yet resilient and retain a slightly wheaty flavor. You can enjoy them in warm bowl of flavorful broth or cold with the dipping sauce on the side. Kamakiri Udon offers the best of both the Sanuki and Hakata styles of udon. The donburi include the perennial favorites—katsudon, oyakodon and tendon—and you can also order a mini size (¥300~) to go with your udon. Last but not least, don’t miss the eye-catching “free small glass of beer anytime”. As the name suggests, you can order one glass of beer at no charge, day or night. If you’d like to continue beyond your complimentary beer, you can choose from a wide range of shochu and sake. Stop by for a late lunch or enjoy a bowl of noodles after a few drinks on the way home from work. At Kamakiri Udon, any time is udon time!
