None.: "None." Tokyo Restaurant Tip by Krystynn

Tokyo Restaurants: 559 reviews and 1,152 photos

 
 

Favorite Dish: I'm going to spend a few minutes talking about <b>NOODLES</b>. Yes, noodles is a major food staple here in Asia.... and there are lots of varieties to choose from. Tell me which ones are your favorites after you've read this list O.K.?

<b><u>Basic types:</b></u>



<b>Ramen</b> -- wheat; most commonly sold pre-cooked with packets of broth.



<b>Soba</b> -- buckwheat.



<b>Somen</b> -- wheat, served cold.



<b>Udon</b> -- wheat; a square-edged, thick, chewy noodle. <i>This is my personal favorite</i>.


<b><u>What to Order in Japanese Restaurants?</b></u>

<b>Yakisoba</b> are Japanese stir-fried noodles.


<b>Tempura Soba</b> is a noodle soup topped with deep fried vegetables and shrimp.



<b>Nabeyaki Udon</b> is udon noodles in stock topped with chicken, seafood, fish and vegetables.



<i>See what you've done to me?</i>

You've made me so hungry that I'm gonna grab some food to eat now.... before I carry on any further.
