Just a 3-minute walk from Nishi-kasai Station, there is a long-loved Udon restaurant.
I didn’t have time to eat lunch and I was literally starving so I just stopped at Saitagawa that I passed by. It’s a very small restaurant, with a total of 20 seats including both counter and table seats.
When I sat down, a manager-like person came over and asked if it’s my first time here and recommended me some popular menus.
He also introduced me seasonal menus and popular menus among women.
I could tell that he truly cherishes every single customer.
Because it was my first time here, I ordered the recommended Hiyashi-Saitagawa Udon (¥850) and Takikomi-gohan (¥120).
Even after I made the order, I couldn’t stop looking at the menu!
I would love to come here for a drink next time!
The menu was made out of Washi (traditional Japanese paper). I feel the love of the manager!
There were cute pictures of cats around the restaurant. The manager is probably a cat-lover. Udon arrived!
Fried chikuwa (a tube-shaped fish paste cake), meatball, soft-boiled egg, and noodles! Yummm!
I squeezed the lemon and tried the fried chikuwa first!
The udon has a slight flavour of wheat and it goes so well with the simple soup. It is very delicate yet tasty!
Soft-boiled egg with the noodles… pure happiness!!
Add tenkasu if you want some extra crunchiness.
I also ordered takikomi-gohan (cooked rice). It was flavored with soy sauce and it had scallops in it.
One portion is not too big so order udon with an additional cooked rice, or some appetizers.
I am definitely visiting again!
