Udon in a temple town at a lower price

We, Chiba don’t have much good udon restaurants.

Well, there’re not many udon restaurants in Chiba in the first place.

Certainly, there are many chain stores like Marugame udon, Hanamaru udon, Yudetaro and so on in Chiba, too.
Yes, such chain stores are good. I like Marugame udon !

But. BUT !
Sanuki-udon such as Marugame udon and Hanamaru udon serve excellent udon.  But they don’t serve good soup.
Yudetaro serve weak soup.

I want to eat tasty udon with tasty warm soup !

Fortunately, we found there is one good udon restaurant in Chiba !

It is named Otafuku close to Kamagaya-Daibutsu station.

Appearance, Otafuku (Kamagaya-Daibutsu)


As you see, it’s locally and cozy udon restaurant.

Entrance, Otafuku (Kamagaya-Daibutsu)


Kamagaya-Daibutsu station, as its name, it’s famous as Kamagaya Daibutsu.
There are many tourists.

Kamagaya Daibutsu sta. have Kamagaya Daibutsu, Otafuku and another popular soba restaurant. That’s all 😛
It’s ordinary residential area.

Otafuku is popular as saba-zushi (mackerel sushi さばずし, 700 yen)

Ordinary saba-zushi isn’t put shredded kombu (or Tororo kombu) on it. But Otafuku serve such saba-zushi 🙂
The smell and texture of shredded kombu go with those sushi very well. Those mackerel were vinegared lightly.

おたふくで人気なのがこのさばずし(ノ∀`) 上に乗っかっているのはとろろ昆布です。

Of course, we ordered it.

And we shared two limited udon during this season.

Shijimi clam udon (しじみうどん, 850 yen)

That’s my longing soup !
I love eating udon with such a tasty soup !
Of course I like Kamatama udon, Kamaage udon etc., too. But I need soup !
I want to eat ramen, soba and udon with tasty soup basically.

It had so much shijimi clams. I ate about half of those shijimi clam, but I couldn’t eat it up because there were too many shijimi clams in it.
Abundant flavor of shijimi was there. So tasty. It was like clear soup.

Kamagaya Daibutsu : Kakiage udon at Otafuku
Precious delicious udon shop in Chiba I got off at Kamagaya-Daibutsu station for the first time. Why ? It is becaus...

Plenty of vegetables with thick soup.
Truthfully speaking, I don’t like it. I don’t like thick soup 😛

    • Ryoko says:

      This saba zushi isn’t vinegared too strong, so I wish people who don’t like vinegared fish like me try it.
      I think they will like it 😉

    Looks good to eat on a cold day.
