[Takamatsu] Udon and octopus tempura at Udon bou Honten (うどん棒本店)

KAGAWA (Takamatsu etc)

After we got out of Onmai, we took a rest and chatted at the bench in Kawaramachi station. After a while, we felt that we could eat some more, so we went to another udon shop. Here. Udon Bou Honten (うどん棒本店).

They are the head shop of Udon bou and there are some branches around Kansai area. It was already past lunchtime, so almost all seats were vacant. My friend’s acquaintance recommended us to go there and he wanted to go there by all means even if he’s full. This shop sell udon for souvenir. And they sell oden, too.

Prices are rather inexpensive.

Their udon is made from flour called “Sanuki no Yume (さぬきの夢, Dream of Sanuki) “. They also sell roll cake made from the flour 🙂

They have a variety of udon on the menu, but we knew the most popular udon there is udon with octopus tempura. So, we ordered it. Udon and simple and hot soup stock. And green onions, grated ginger and peel of sudachi (a kind of citrus).

Those tempura was so crisp. And the octopus (legs mainly) tasted good.

And oden. Many of udon shops in Takamatsu are self-service shops. But this shop isn’t. They take our order and serve water. Ordinary Japanese-style house have calm atmosphere and we could be relaxed.

Also so many udon shops in Takamatsu don’t their business at night, but this shop is open until 9 p.m., so it is very helpful shop for local people that they can eat udon at night after alcoholic drinks 🙂
