Tokyo

Any idea what "Musashino Udon" is? This is a type of quite unique udon noodle from Kanto region that originated both in Tokyo and Saitama. This article will review its brief characteristics as well as the best restaurants for it. It is definitely a must-have if you love udon noodles or even noodles in general!

What is Musashino Udon?

______
Shoyu ramen (soy sauce-based ramen) is one of the traditional Japanese ramen. The combination of springy noodle and the mild tasting soup has been loved for generations. Horiuchi is one of the best places in town to have this standard ramen bowl. There are two dishes you should try here. One is the natto ramen (pictured above). This strikingly bold combination is surprisingly delicious! The other ramen bowl you should have is the chashu ramen. For 1,300 yen you get a soy sauce based ramen topped with an extremely generous amount of thick pork belly slices. It's the ramen bowl for meat lovers.

Located just a 3-minute walk from the West Exit of the Shinjuku Station.

This is a restaurant specializes in Musashino Udon in Kokubunji. While its nostalgic atmosphere reminds you of the Showa era in Japan, you can enjoy the typical combination of "noodles with a flavor of wheat and dip sauce that has a rich taste".

A bit far from the station, but you will get addicted to it!: "Mangetsu Udon"

This is one decent restaurant in Musashimurayama that impresses even the most avid udon noodle enthusiasts.
In fact, it is in a remote area that is not quite accessible by trains or buses. Even so, it is so popular that some people are willing to wait in a line for it. Enjoy its unique super thick noodles!

A Long-established Udon Noodle Restaurant: "Kiku-ya"

Walking 8 minutes from the Musashi-Yamato station on the Seibu Tamako Line, there is a long-established udon noodle restaurant with about 40 years of history.

You may find the simple taste of their traditional Musashino Udon somewhat comforting as well.

Despite having many fans, its another notable advantage is that it takes them a short amount of time to prepare the food, which contributes to a better rotation of customers.

Eating Musashino Udon In Central Tokyo: "Uchitate-ya"

Being only 6 minutes away from Ikebukuro station on foot, this is quite a convenient Musashino Udon restaurant.

Unlike other Musashino Udon restaurants that are mostly in the Tama area, this is one that’s in central Tokyo.

It also has miscellaneous food menu including curry soup and grated yam in contrast to the majority of them whose specialty tends to be only single dip sauce that has a similar taste.

The Best Restaurant To Stop By For A Lunch In City Exploration: "Musashino Enza"

Our last pick is a Musashino Udon restaurant in Nerima. It is interesting as it can be found in a museum called "Nerima Shakujiikoen Furusato Museum"

In this restaurant, you can also try "Kake Udon" and "Kamaage" that are unusual for the conventional Musashino Udon.

Lastly

This article only reviewed the Musashino Udon restaurants in Tokyo, but it seems there are also several nice ones in the west of Saitama where it originated. We would like to cover that as well soon so you can enjoy more about Musashino Udon!
