Sanuki Udon Hanamaru

Cheap but tasty udon all over the country

With over 300 restaurants all across Japan, Sanuki Udon Hanamaru boasts their famous sanuki udon, originating from Kagawa Prefecture, for only ¥280 yen (small size)! Sanuki udon is made with a special kind of wheat, providing a unique texture to the noodles. Because I was hungry, I ordered a medium size with karaage (fried chicken) and chikuwa (fish patty) and it still came out to be under ¥500! It’s a serve-it-yourself style, so you can pick your sides, which noodles you like, and then you pay. Easy, cheap, and healthy fast food!
