The people of Kagawa prefecture are mad for udon, traveling for hours on their days off just to sample versions of the local sanuki udon noodles at different shops. This special variety of udon is distinctly chewier and more filling than the udon of other regions.
The town of Ayagawa has one of the top places to try them: Tamura Udon. This unassuming little shop usually has a considerable queue outside, composed of hungry locals and curious travelers drawn in by its reputation as one of the best udon shops in the country.
Simple kake udon is the most popular dish, but other varieties like soy udon are available. Once you’ve chosen your bowl, you can add toppings like the conventional chicken, veggie, and shrimp tempura, or the more unique seafood tempura alongside basic fare such as boiled or raw egg.
Of course, you’re also free to load up on seasonings to your heart’s content, from the station packed with tempura flakes, spring onion, and grated radish.
Reservations not available; walk-ins only.
