Best Udon in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Day or night, rain or shine, we Malaysians are spoilt silly with a smorgasbord of noodle options. The udon trend has certainly taken off and we are indeed more than grateful. What started off as a consort for sushi meal or Japanese set lunch, today a good bowl of udon have patrons levitating over again and again. Just like pasta in Italy, these wheat flour strands are widely vouched in Japan as it comprises a number of health benefits too. In other words, it’s the best option when your tongue seeks shelter from oily, overwhelmingly spicy and overdone noodles which are more ubiquitous. Doused in a simple soup or stir-fried under high heat, we have scoured udon spots that steal your heart upon the first bite. And they are known to be easy on your wallet and waistline.
