I would consider myself an enthusiast in hearty Asian soups - specifically Vietnamese Pho and Japanese Nabeyaki Udon or Soba. Choices are somewhat limited in the Hartford area for places that serve these and while they all served very good Nabeyakis, none stood out as memorable and as tasty as Murasaki's. Out of 4 places we frequent for this Japanese treat (Harford/Manchester area), we were pleasantly surprised by the sweet/salty broth and how it gracefully melded with the the noodles to produce a tasty and chewy treat. The tempura shrimp was not overwhelmed by the panko breading and were the perfect foil for the noodles and soup. Because price was at par with our other soup haunts, it's a no-brainer for us to come back to Murasaki if we need another Nabeyaki soup fix.
