Enjoy udon noodles in a restaurant directly managed by a noodle factory!

Mendokoro Miki
Yanagibashi Rengo Market is known by the catchphrase "Hakata's kitchen". The market is lined with fresh green produce grocers and fresh fish shops with long histories. Miki Seimenjo noodle factory is located near Yanagibashi Rengo Market and has been around for half a century. The factory's main business is wholesale noodles, but with the thought of "attract customers to taste our own noodles", they utilized a corner of their premises to offer a dining facility called Mendokoro Miki.

At the venue, you can enjoy a wide range of dishes such as udon, soba, champon and Japanese-style ramen made with noodles that restaurant is proud of. Among them, their signature menu is udon. Hakata has a long history of serving Udon noodles that are boiled in advance. The soft and fluffy texture of these noodles are a perfect match for the tasty dashi soup stock made from dried sardines, various kinds of fish flakes and kombu seaweed.

In addition to the classic gobo burdock tempura version, you can choose other toppings such as maruten (fish cake tempura) or meat. If you want to eat a bigger meal, you can add rice dishes such as Inari or kashiwa (chicken) rice balls. This restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes, but regular customers are big fans of the champon noodles and recommend trying that dish. Even regular Udon lovers will be satisfied and will enjoy this dish, which is served with a delicious Japanese-style udon soup poured over the noodles.
