Although Tenpura Sanuki Udon is
located in an alley at XingYi Warner ATT and Neo
19, the reputation of this semi-hidden place has
people scouring the alleyways to find it, to taste
its Sanuki Udon (Japanese noodles) dishes. It
is hard to believe how much work goes into making
a bowl of noodles. They insist on making noodles
with only with flour and water, adding no preservatives
or chemicals. This process, which also includes
the use of sea salt and humidity and temperature
control, makes the noodles non-sticky. As a customer
here, all you have to do is enjoy a bowl of chewy
udon! --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
A. Tenpura's udon is all served
in set-meal forms (NT$180-330) and comes with
small side dishes and dessert. The most expensive
one is the Three-Treasure Udon, which comes in
three flavors: Wild Yam, Tempura or Curry. Order
this meal along with Teriyaki Chicken Cakes (NT$180),
and Roasted Miso Eggplant (NT$120), for a perfect
meal for two.
B. Cold Udon with Sesame Salad
(NT$260) is so refreshing and tangy that you will
definitely want another after you finish the first.
