Udonyasan. Not another sushi restaurant.

Saturday, December 19, 2009 at 1:59 PM
About 2 weeks ago we had tea time at (udonyasan) after class. It's a Japanese fast food restaurant that mainly deals with traditional noodles located at Arbat Street. It's just right opposite the other sushi restaurant Euroasia which i blogged b4. Click here for that post. So, apparently they are the first Japanese restaurant without sushi or sashimi.

Photobucket

Here's more info on their menus and pricing with English translation.

And here's some pic of us having our well deserved break.

Photobucket

Udon with chicken and mayo.


Photobucket

Udon with fried pork and wasabi. Naaise.


Photobucket

This is what i ordered. Basically its beef udon with some onion sprinkles. The soup is what I like best about it.


Photobucket

I ordered a 'kombi meal' which came with a Japanese salad and..


Photobucket

Onigiri.


Photobucket

John savouring the soup half way typing away.


Photobucket

The highlight of the night was Raimie ordered something he shouldn't. A katsudon that contains porkoo! Of all noodles available he ordered the only udon with p*rk! lmao.
Apparently he asked for something with beef but maybe the counter lady heard him wrongly or just wanted to punk him.


Photobucket
Burst of laughter.

Photobucket
Eventually I ate it for him and paid him some more. Yeah he owes me.


Photobucket

Kinn ordered a Jap beer to top things up for him. Despite being super dry, it tasted good.


Photobucket

2 satisfied customers.


Photobucket

We were shocked when John suggested to go one more portion after each of us had 2 rounds already. Just look at the picture, 2 bowls each.

In the end, we didn't do 3rd round although we'd love to. Gotta watch the burning holes in our pocket. All in all, not too bad for the food and the price. I'd rate it 7/10.

Dear readers, from today onwards I will post random pictures of the day apart from the blog posts with a theme I've been doing so far. I'm doing this because I thought it would be a good idea to share more pictures I've taken.

Afterall, where's the JOY in photography if pictures are just kept and not being shared ?

Hopefully I can make it a daily affair of updating them.
Pictures are taken in Moscow unless stated.

It's snowing once again

Wednesday, December 9, 2009 at 11:35 PM
After internal disease class (aka i.d.) on Monday, we thought it would be a good idea to have some Japanese udon noodles at Arbat to warm our tummy up. It's been snowing quite heavily for the past 2-3 days if u haven't noticed.

Here's some pictures of the snow journey to Arbat street.

I thought the last picture was interesting. Despite the heavy snow, these street artist continue on with their work hoping to draw customers to their little portraiture booth. I suppose you can always find these artists sketching away at Arbat all season round.

So I guess Moscow's back with the usual weather business! Personally i thought snowing is a tedious matter. I've seen people fall down far too many times when it snows like that. Plus it's so hard to wake up in the morning when its so nice and warm at bed.

But what would Christmas be without some frosting? Global warming.


Next up, dinner at Udonbyasan !
