“Utsuwa Main Store” in Nishi-Temmna

High quality udon in a value lunch set meal!

For lunch today I went to “Utsuwa Main Store” in Nishi-Temmna.
From standard udon, to udon overflowing with originality, there are various menus—and what’s more, there’s also a value lunch time set meal.

The “A lunch” (¥950)
This set receives full points for volume, with noodles in broth topped with green onions, or cold noodles in broth with egg, or pure soy sauce noodles, plus katsu toji (fried pork and eggs), and rice!


I picked the delicious tasting “pure soy sauce udon.”
Squeeze over the lemon and sprinkle on some soy sauce…



Wooow, delicious!!
The slippery udon noodles are properly done, and a little stretchy, and the flavor also receives a perfect score!
Just what you’d expect from high quality udon!


The “katsu toji” certainly has volume, with a whole big slice of breaded pork!


You put it on the rice, and eat it as katsudon (pork cutlet on rice).


The dashi broth is really tasty!
I couldn’t stop eating the white rice…





There are lots of appealing udon dishes, and I want to try them all!
The lunch time set meal was very good value, and most of the customers were ordering this set!


It’s a little bit far from the center of Umeda, but it’s rare to find a place here where you can eat this kind of high quality udon!
There were only a few customers up till 12:00p.m., but then a whole load of customers came in all at once!
The restaurant looks like it’s well supported by all the salarymen and office ladies who work in the area!
I hope I’ll have the pleasure of visiting again in the future!
