Walked pass Tamoya Udon at Chinatown Point a few times, always wondering why the Udon looks so plain. Wahahahaa…finally get to try it during lunch time yesterday, and understand why now! Interesting!
About Tamoya Udon:
Tamoya was established in the home of udon, Sanuki (now known as kagawa) in 1996 by Tamotsu Kurokawa, the Saniku udon champion. Singapore is their first overseas outlet in Southeast Asia! Brought all the way from Tamoya Japan, Sanuki udon is hand-crafted from Tamoya’s proprietary flour mixture and served with “golden dashi” broth.
We were lost, ha ha ha…not sure how to order. But the Japanese staff was very friendly and assisted us.
How to order?
1. Order (tell the jap chefs at the counter what you want)
2. Choose your fried items
3. Proceed to pay
4. Add your preferred condiments (free flow)
That’s it. Simple ya…feel like an assembly line…ha ha ha…or it’s similar to how you order your food from Ikea Restaurant.
There are different style of udon for you to choose from:

Free flow of condiments for you to choose: spring onions, pickles, seaweed, tempura flakes, etc. I didn’t but my colleagues added the tempura flakes and they said it’s nice. Shall try it next time.
Erm…not sure why I chose the Curry Udon…wahahaha… As it’s my first visit, should have gotten more soupy ones. Curry is a bit too heavy for first visit. I love the udon! The texture is different from others. It’s more springy, more chewy and fatter! Had Chicken Katsu Cutlet and Chicken Karaage, but was a bit cold (maybe it was left outside on the tray for some time)… It will definitely be a plus plus point if they were served hot. Hm…Can request the staffs to fry again? But then, it will not be fresh and nice if you fried it twice. How to keep them hot & crispy??
My Curry Udon
Oh, they don’t served soft drinks, green tea, hot tea or other beverages, but there’s free flow of chilled water. Not sure if it’s the same for other outlets. There’s also a sign asking patrons to return the tray after eating, so please help 😀
During my next visit, I want to try something lighter…he he he…
