Not too many foreigners know that there are various types of UDONS. Just like pasta there is fresh and dry. INANIWA UDON is a dry udon, thin and flat and is only made in Akita prefecture. Since its a dry udon, most people think that its less expensive than fresh udon, but not Inaniwa. Depending on the brand, it could cost double to triple of the most expensive fresh udon.

There aren't too many Inaniwa Udon restaurants in Tokyo, but NANAKURA at Shinbashi is one of the few, and when I use to work at Shinbashi, it was one of my favorite restaurants for lunch.

Nanakura is only open for lunch and their menu is very simple. Just cold Inaniwa udon or cold Inaniwa udon with mini seafood bowl. The cold Inaniwa udon comes with a miso based dipping sauce. The broth is made out of duck, dried bonito and etc. I never had such a dipping sauce like Nanakura's. 99% of the customers order cold Inaniwa udon with mini seafood bowl, not just cold Inaniwa udon. And when you're done with the udon, have miso dipping sauce left, just add some hot water which is in a thermos bottle on your table, and you will have a nice miso soup to finish your meal.

It also comes with the best pickled Chinese cabbage, I ever had and free of refills. It is made by a pickle company just for his shop and many customers including myself have asked the owner/chef if we can purchase it, but he told us that he even said NO to one of the ex-Prime Minister's in the past.

If you order MINI DONBURI SET (Inaniwa Udon with Mini Seafood Bowl), you get to choose the seafood bowl of your choice. They are NEGI TORO DON (Chopped White Scallions & Fatty Tuna over Rice),

ZUKE DON (Tuna marinated in Soy Sauce over Rice),

MAGURO IKURA DON (Tuna & marinated Salmon Roe over Rice), but do note that not all of them will be available. Most of the time only 2 out for 4 will be available.

If you want to eat some noodles, lite not fatty with a little seafood, Nanakura is a great reasonable lunch restaurant. Its even walking distance from Ginza.
