Udon noodles are made from a mixture of water, salt, and wheat flour that has been kneaded, ripened, rolled flat, and cut into strips.
The noodles are then boiled and served in hot broth or with a dipping sauce.

People in the Kanto region around Tokyo have traditionally preferred soba, while those in the Kansai region of Osaka and Kobe favor udon.

Hanamaru Udon, is a chain of udon
with low price and convenience. No one seats you or brings food to your table ...


Instead, customers take a tray, order and pick up their own udon, put their favorite toppings on it, and pay their bill at a cashier in cafeteria style.

With a menu of over 15 kinds of udon and an array of tasty toppings, it is fun to mix and match to suit your taste.

Favorite Dish: The standard options include kake udon , a bowl of hot udon in clear soup stock made from small dried sardines
