A local friend's recommendation. The Kitsune udon was wonderful and a must-try. The udon broth was sweet and light. A breakaway from the thick heavier ramen.

Very select few dishes that were okay. Would recommend ppl to order the fried / tempura dishes as you can’t go wrong with them. My seafood udon was quite boring to be honest.
