"Itadakimasu!" I feel like I have eaten two big bowls of Udon.

The first bowl is hot in hot broth – full of comic variety, combination of several tastes which makes it rich and enjoyable. The ‘maker’ is a Japanese comic actor who returns home to his village after he fails to make it big in the Big Apple. He rediscovers his love for udon, and makes the whole world fall in love with this unappreciated noodle dish with his ingenious food hunt magazine. Have a good laugh and a hearty meal.

After more than an hour on the last, you will be served another bowl. This time, it is cold on hot broth. You have to slowly appreciate the Japanese family flavour, slowly crafted to its perfection. It is prepared by both the cold traditional father and the fun loving prodigal son. With simmer heat and the usual father-son tension, it reminds many of their own family culture.

Like the making of Japanese food, it takes its time to indulge in the Japanese culture, which bridges family ties and heal souls. This bowl feels warm in the tummy, and one would appreciate the dedication of the chief chef to its final product. Keep it mind that he has already whipped up dishes such as the popular Bayside Showdown and Space Travelers.

The second bowl would have been just enough to make me feel satisfied. As you struggle to finish it, you realise it may be one bowl too much. I can't finish my udon. *Burp*

Udon – Half of it should be enough
