Udon Daimonji Onojo Honten / Main Branch (うどん大文字 大野城本店)


The unforgettable delicious flat udon with incredibly chewy texture and additive-free dashi!

Udon Daimonji Onojo Honten
There is a udon restaurant in Onojo City (Fukuoka Prefecture) which is famous for their delicious chewy flat noodles - "Udon Daimonji Onojo Honten (Main Branch)". It is located by the roadside and is about 15 minutes walk from Kasugabaru Station (Nishitetsu Tenjin Ōmuta Line). The car park is usually full during lunchtime and it is common to see a long queue at the restaurant. Their signature udon comes in a flat shape with a width of about 1 cm and a thickness of about 2 mm. It gives an incredibly smooth and chewy texture which would make you addicted to it. Although hot udon is always a top recommendation, you may try cold udon such as bukkake udon or zaru udon if you want to fully enjoy the texture of the noodles. Besides that, the tsuyu (dipping sauce) used is additive-free, it carries wonderful umami (savouriness) and a nice subtle aftertaste. The restaurant offers a wide variety of standard menu with reasonable price from 350 Yen, e.g. “Niku & Goboten (Meat & tempura fried burdock) Udon”, “Niku Udon”, “Goboten Udon”, “Kake Udon”, etc. Furthermore, Kashiwa-meshi (rice prepared with chicken meat and stock) will be a good choice as a side dish to go with udon, as well as the most popular Katsu-don which is served with crispy cutlets and soft egg enhanced with sweet tsuyu. Set menus are also available. You may enjoy your meal alone or in a group as they provide many table seats and koagari seats (raised tatami-floored seating area). Isn’t it the kind of lovely restaurant that you would wish to see in your neighbourhood? Maybe it is time for a visit!
