I lost count of which round of food posts it was, but I think round 5 or 6. In any case, I just got back from a trip to Ise Jinguu and on the way I had some Ise udon which is a famous dish from the area.
The udon usually comes with a rice bowl of sorts too. I picked a seafood bowl but there are others as well. Warning though, the bowl is super super fishy. If you’re not really into fish, you should avoid it.
As for the udon! Concentrated soy sauce and sweet Japanese cooking sake are used to create a black broth which is poured over thick, handmade noodles. The common way to eat it is to add only chopped spring onion and red pepper as seasonings and mix it well in the bowl.
And in the back there are two giant clam-ish shellfish things too. They were also delicious :). All this for only 1,780 yen!
I’ll get to work on my photo post once I’m done pdeng, sigh…
Until next time!
