Craving japanese, we stopped by Udon in El Born. The menu looked promising and at 9.95, the menu midday (a main, an appetiser, a drink and dessert) is priced rather reasonably. We ordered a yakiudon and a yakisoba- they tasted all right as noodles but not "authentically" japanese so to speak. Disappointingly, the yakisoba wasn't made out of japanese soba noodles at all but more of regular instant-type noodles from the packet. It tasted ok though and it fills you up. The udon noodles on the other hand didn't taste hand-made and the sauce that went along with it was slightly odd. Didn't like it much really. The dessert turned out to be the meal's saving grace in the end. The matcha green tea ice cream tasted pretty good and we were offered double scoops each. At least the service was commendable. I wouldn't revisit for a japanese fix, but for desserts I just might give it another shot.
