Japan is home to countless noodle shops, with each offering a different style, flavour or broth. Udon noodles are made using wheat flour and cut thicker, and form the base of a very hearty meal. So whether you prefer them alone in a simple broth or sprinkled with toppings, the celebrated noodles at Udon Taira are well worth sampling whenever you are in Fukuoka.
The small restaurant attracts crowds of locals and allows diners to see the chefs stretch out huge clumps of dough and shave off each noodle.
The restaurant offers exceptional value, with the signature burdock Tempura Udon bowl costing just 430 yen (4 USD). The atmosphere is as good as the food – friendly and lively in equal measure – and together with the top-quality noodles, Udon Taira has all of the ingredients for a great meal out.
