A popular Udon restaurant in Miyakawa City which has gained overwhelming support!

Ganso Ebisuyaudon
Despite being in the outskirts of Miyakawa City, many people make their way here to line up for Udon during lunch time. The store is about 10 minutes away from the Wakamiya IC on the Kyushu Expressway and offers convenient parking facilities. It is not only popular with families but also with business people and long-distance drivers.

Staple udon dishes like gobou-ten (burdock tempura), maru-ten (fried fishcake), kitsune (fried tofu) and niku (meat) udon are available alongside a homemade spicy sauce stamina udon. Besides Udon, this store also offers a variety of rice dishes such as stone-bowl bibimbap, katsu (pork cutlet) curry and other rice bowls with flavorful toppings. A set meal with mini sized Udon noodles and Tori-ten (chicken tempura) is a very popular, affordable option.

The noodles are homemade and use Fukuoka's "chikugo-izumi" flour, which gives the noodles a softness with a certain subtle texture, typical for Fukuoka. The noodles have a chewy texture bringing out just the right amount of elasticity while chewing them. The restaurant also uses high-quality kombu seaweed and dried fish shavings for their soup stock, which supports the overall taste of the dish. The owners are proud of their long tradition of making this soup stock following a recipe that remains unchanged since founding the restaurant. If you are visiting this store for the first time I recommend trying the gobou-ten (burdock tempura) udon. Enjoy the perfect combination of chewy noodles and tasty soup that is sure to leave a lasting impression with you.
