This unsuspecting udon restaurant became a hit immediately after opening, with queues all the way onto the pavement. They specialise in one item only, and here you can choose to have your noodles hot or cold, in hot or cold broth or with broth on the side. Happily their other = dishes are fantastic too, like the pork belly slow-cooked in cider and a fantastic take on fish and chips with cod tempura and lotus leaf crisps. Prices are keen and there are usually plenty of Japanese people eating here, always a good sign.
