Wandering around Nishi-Kasai, I was drawn to a small restaurant with an interesting mix of traditional and modern on the exterior. The full name of the restaurant is Sanuki Chokusou Udon Saitagawa (“sanuki udon right away Saitagawa”), but is known as Saitagawa. The owner recommended the cold plum bukkake udon – bukkake udon comes with strong but very little broth and toppings like grated radish and smoked bonito flakes. True to its name, my order came to me right away. The noodles were just right, and the tartness of the plum made the dish refreshing – perfect for a hot summer day.
