Went to a Japanese Noodle restaurant for lunch today. Unfortunately I couldn’t read the menu so my aunt had to dictate to me and even then I only understood about half of it. Good thing I know the words for “beef” and “udon” in Cantonese!
1) I ate a bowl of beef udon in a tomato based broth. There was half an egg, a couple slices of fish cake, corn nibblets, green onion, and chunks of tomato and onion in the broth as well. Definitely one of the better udon bowls that I’ve had.
2) My aunt Amy had a bowl of beef cheek ramen (I’m not exactly sure what type of noodles they were) in chili broth. Her bowl also had the same ingredients in the broth as listed about plus some seaweed as well.
3) The restaurant was quite small and had an entire glass window looking through into the kitchen. My aunt asked the owner if I could take pictures because she mentioned I was from out of town. I still felt awkward doing so because all the kitchen workers but one gave me odd looks. The other guy (on the left) actually smiled and nodded his head at me.
4) Unfortunately I couldn’t really get any good pictures seeing into the kitchen because there were menus and what appeared to be news articles on the window. That one guy on the left kept looking at me all funny. It was a bit disconcerting.
