Men Chirashi, A Cool Shop for Oldschool Udon

The stylish udon-ya is located in the heart of trendsetting Harajuku, giving traditional udon a modern spin.

Feel free to follow favy!
Shigeru Okada, the creator behind Delifucious, the fishburger joint in Nakameguro that was one of the hits of 2017, strikes again with this absolutely stylish udon-ya.
The first thing you'll notice when entering Men Chirashi is its modern decor: smashed udon bowls glazed into the wall in front of the open kitchen, tatami walls with neon characters, and skateboards.
The shop's specialty is Sanuki udon (讃岐うどん), characterized by its square shape and flat edges. This type of udon noodle is most popular in the Shikoku region, but is now easily found throughout the neighboring Kansai region and much of Japan.
Men Chirashi's udon is “Freshly rolled; freshly cut; freshly cooked”, as their motto states. You can watch the chef prepare it in front of you.

The menu offers eight kinds of udon, like Kake udon (udon in hot dashi), Zaru udon (cold udon with soup on the side), Kamaage Udon (hot udon), and Kamatama Udon (hot noodles with a raw egg yolk). After choosing your base you can go crazy with the toppings. The prices range from 450 yen to 3000 yen, depending on what toppings you choose.
The classic accompaniment to sanuki udon is tempura. Simple and delightful!
Udon with tororo (grated yam), Natto, egg yolk, grilled Nori seaweed, fresh seaweed, bonito flakes, and Kujo green onions.
Bukake Udon with grated daikon, skid legs tempura and spring onions.
Mozuku tomato udon with raw egg yolk, shiso, fresh tomato, and sesame.
The shop is really easy to find, just look for the yellow truck always parked in front of it.
If you're an udon fan, chances are you'll become a frequent customer at Men Chirashi.
