Niwakaya Chosuke (二○加屋長介)

Udon izakayas are all the rage in Fukuoka and now you can experience that style of Hakata udon izakaya in Nakameguro, Tokyo. Basically, people first enjoy some drinks and otsumami (small dishes) and end their visit with the udon.

The place is an izakaya with all the food you'd expect to find at one from sashimi to karaage (fried chicken). The menu is all on the wall written in Japanese.

This is the thing you'll have to try if you ever go there. It's a white chicken soup udon (鶏白湯あつかけうどん) with some toppings of chicken pieces cooked sous-vide (at a low temperature for a long time). The smell of this soup is just irresistible.

Homemade Udon Noodles

The homemade noodles are made of wheat produced on Itoshima in Fukuoka Prefecture. They're quite thick and springy which makes them really nice to chew and swallow!

Deep Savoury Taste

What gives the soup such its deep taste is the fact that chicken bones are simmered for over 8 hours to make the broth. The taste is powerful even though the broth isn't very oily. As for the sous-vide chicken toppings which are also homemade, they're extremely tender and go perfectly well with the light soup.

Lastly...

If you want a nice izakaya experience with some outstanding Hakata udon, Niwakaya Chosuke is a place of choice!
