“Hommachi Seimenjo” in Sakaisuji Hommachi
Today I enjoyed lunch at an udon restaurant in Sakaisuji Hommachi called “Hommachi Seimenjo”.
When I’d heard there was an udon shop that specialized in “Osaka-style udon,” with that broth that has always and forevermore been delicious, I knew I had to go check it out.
Keep in mind that this restaurant also offers udon served cold, but I had an insatiable craving to slurp down that warm broth, so I ordered a helping of “Sansai udon” instead.
Let’s start with the broth…
The bonito inside the stock was perfect– not too overwhelming, and the way it spreads through your mouth… Superb!
The stock features a whopping seven different kinds of katsuobushi with konbu harvested naturally in the Hokkaido area. Now this is the kind of attention to detail I’d expect from Osakan-style udon!
As for the noodles…
Wow! Now these are some top-shelf noodles!
Today’s “lunch of the day” featured salmon rice.
The mountain of salmon flakes on top were extra-especially delicious!
And with a wonderful glass of rooibos tea to wash it all down, I was on cloud nine!
All said, everything included in this lunch combo came to the very low price of 650 yen. What a deal!
This cozy restaurant seats only eight people at the counter.
I came to visit fairly late in the day, but even then the restaurant was packed with customers!
You know, I think it’s become my mission to spread the word of that delicious dish from Osaka, the oh-so-delectable treasure that is Osaka-style udon…
Next time, I think I’ll go for cold udon! （＾＾
