I have to move near the shop…
The second day’s morning of my trip to Takamatsu, we went to Hashioka station by train.
Cozy station 🙂
You guess Why did we got off at such a small station in a rural area ?
Because … we wanted to go to this shop. Udon Ippuku.
Ippuku’s branch was open in Kanda area of Tokyo in this August.
We already tried the branch, and we wanted to eat at the head shop, too.
Because it was after three-day weekend, or it was too early in the morning, there weren’t many people in the shop.
Still half of the seats were occupied.
At first, oden section welcomed us. I know Kanda branch don’t cook oden except in Winter, but the head shop already prepared it 🙂
I wanted eat some oden, but we scheduled to go some udon shops that day ! I had to refrain from eating too much in the morning.
And tempura and onigiri section…
And then the cook took our order for udon.
They served our udon so quickly and we paid the total fee of our foods on our tray.
There are section for seasonings and toppings.I put green onions, ginger and sudachi.
After that, we were seated.
This is my breakfast.
Hiya-kake (cold udon with cold soup, 冷かけ, 220 yen) all the same.
I ate hiya-kake at Kanda branch, so, I wanted to compare the head shop and Kanda branch.
This udon had springy texture and it went down smoothly. I want to eat this udon every day ! I have to move to Takamatsu ! X(
And there’s no choice but take half-boiled egg tempura (半熟玉子天, 110 yen) 🙂
Oden (Beef tendon, 牛すじ, 150 yen)
My friend’s cold bukkake (冷ぶっかけ, 280 yen). Ah, he put tenkasu on it !
and kintoki beans tempura (金時豆天, 110 yen) and chicken tempura (金時豆天, 140 yen).
The head shop’s udon was quite another from Kanda branch’s. Truthfully speaking, I couldn’t be satisfied with the udon that Kanda branch served, compared with the head shop. I wish I could eat this high quality of udon at Kanda branch !
Of course, Kanda branch is just starting out. I’m counting on them !
