Japan's Tamoya Udon is Now in Singapore
After that random visit to an outlet of Rakugama a few years ago, I kept hoping that one day there would be an assembly-line style udon shop like that in Singapore. Marusaya had a similar idea, but fell way short due to that lousy tempura, no matter how many times I tried to go back there in hopes that it might get better. So when I saw the construction signs going up at Liang Court for this place a few weeks ago (177 River Valley Road #01-32, 6337-0301), I fully geeked out, marking my calendar for their opening day and even being the first in line today.
And I'm glad that I did. I gobbled down two bowls in succession, and thankfully the tempura was hot and crisp too. I still like Rakugama much better (they have a wider selection and thicker, chewier noodles), but hey, with all things considered, I'm glad that this place has opened, and will easily be coming here a lot more, especially given how quickly I can finish my meal and get out of there. Note to self: go easy on the negi next time, especially if you're going back to the office afterwards (now where is my darned toothbrush??).
