This is the first restaurant in HK that specialised in Himokawa udon, which is a large sheet of udon. I had arrived into the restaurant at 12:10pm on a Sunday afternoon, knowing that there will be a line for this new restaurant ! I was totally right, there was around 8 people in front of me ! After over 45 mins later, I finally got seated at the bar table of the restaurant ! The shop only consist of 10 seats are the bar and two tables for 4 people. On their menu, udons are served in soup or dip
On their menu, udons are served in soup or dip version; in hot and cold. I had ordered their signature dip udon in hot soup, since their air-condition was pretty cold inside !
You can see from the bar table that they place sheet after sheet of udon on a plate gently !
I had ordered the signature chicken soup and the duck soup flavor today both in dip version !
For the chicken soup, it was a little sweet for my taste buds. The soup was definitely not for drinking purpose ! I love the eggplants inside the soup which was grilled and soaked all the soup flavor !
The Himokawa udon sheets was thick, silky and with a chewy texture ! It was perfect for me, besides it was a little hard to handle with my chope sticks skills !
Dipping the udon into the soup, it’s best to let it set in a bit though..... for the soup to soak in or else there wouldn’t be a lot of flavor !
As the staff recommend it is best to have the udon served with their special chinese yam dips ! Yes I do agree that the chinese yam dip add a little extra to the texture and balance off the sweetness from the soup ! For my own taste buds I like to add a little wasabi on each bite to level up the overall aroma of the soya flavor !
For the duck soup, it taste pretty much the same as the chicken just the main ingredients was different !
The duck was tender just like the chicken version !
I would love to come back but I hope the line will not be an hour wait. FYI I think I left the store at around 2:00... there was a sold out sign right outside the door ! My recommendation is to go early !
