Possibly the most authentic Japanese cuisine in the area

Great value, Good service.
Highly recommended !
In our search for good Japanese restaurants around the area, we saw this udon shop many times. Strange enough, it is not on Open Rice.
However, they placed adverts in an old school Japanese newspaper, "yomiuri shinbun" 読売新聞! The equivalent of Ming Pao in HK and the Times in the UK, i.e. "serious" newspapers ！(◎_◎;)
So we decide to investigate...
At 12:10 p.m., we were the only other table of customers in the shop. The staff and the chefs seemed quite excited to see us there! ψ(｀∇´)ψ
Now that's what I call motivation!
We were shown our tables by the friendly and smiling waitress. We sat next to the large panel windows.
It's really quite bright, clean and spacious with plenty of seats. The way the tables were arranged was good. All staff members were motivated, polite and friendly. Tea added frequently. Good marks for service.
Udon specialist indeed: Many different types of udon sets, tempura (per piece), sashimi and sushi.
The menu is in Chinese, English and Japanese - accurate, formal Japanese *An important indicator ！(◎_◎;)
We ordered a number of tempura, a Mountain Yam Wasabi Udon (Tororo udon ) and a Onsen Tamago Udon.
HK$9 for one Tempura Chikuwa (a.k.a. Lion Dog Roll in Hong Kong). Σ（ﾟдﾟlll） Cut into half and dipped into nori and batter. Excellent quality! Similar to the very good one at Kichi. You can't beat the price!
Tempura Chicken Breast: Good! Wrapped in a tangy piece of Shiso leave, the chicken meat was succulent and tender. Again, value for money! The Shrimp Tempura was also good. HK$10 each. The shrimp had good shrimp taste. Good timing. Batter was the hard crunchy type but not too oily. Very good considering that it’s not a tempura specialist like Ana Gura or Inagiku.
Again, better than Marukame Seimen. My wife was very happy with her tempura sweet potato too. (((o(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)o)))
One of the authentic ways of eating tempura, and indeed, which I suggest is the best way, is to dip it into salt. That's what was suggested in Imasuke's menu as well.
Talking about salt: Imported from Japan. Proudly made of just seawater from the Okayama area.
Flavourable. Very good with tempura indeed. Try dipping your tempura into salt instead of the tempura sauce.
Our udons arrived shortly afterwards. Looks very authentic:
The tororo (yam) udon and onsen tamago udon: Generous amount of Tororo which tasted really authentic. Good quality nori. Even the grated wasabi was good quality stuff.
My Onsen Tamago Udon looked similarly authentic. A lot of Tenkasu (shreds of left over tempura batter). Not extremely crispy but acceptable. The onsen tamago was flavourful but unfortunately the yoke was almost fully cooked. The sauce used was a sweet teriyaki sauce. Udon:
Very chewy (not to be confused with hard). Great quality udon even without mixing anything else.
Irregular shape - which tends to show that those were homemade. I peered into the kitchen and seemed to see a udon making machine.
Indeed, that's what they mentioned on the wall. Homemade Shikoku Saniki udon with Japanese water with Japanese sea salt.
Definitely one of the top three udon shops in Hong Kong. ！(◎_◎;)
Sanuki Onsentamago Udon: $50
Tororo Wasabi Udon: $52
Ebi tempura: $10
Chikuwa tempura: $9
Sweet potato tempura: $9
Shiso chicken fillet tempura: $10
Plus service: $154!
Excellent value for quality udon and tempura.
Good service. Comfy.
Highly recommended! (((o(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)o)))
