While the relatively unspicy curry udon noodles are the main seller here, the kitchen also turns out several other hot and cold varieties such as spicy natto, Chinese-style tantanmen, and ume-kitsune (fried tofu). The Italian-influenced cold tomato and cheese udon (Y1000) is a refreshing, rather unique bowl, with lots of fresh vegetables like turnips, mushrooms and pumpkin complementing the pleasantly chewy noodles.

The atmosphere is relaxed, and the tasteful decor - tan stucco walls, distressed concrete floor, heavy dark wooden tables - makes this seem more like a chic neighborhood cafe than a noodle joint.
