Oudon Japanese Udon Noodles - Now Open in BGC

Now Open in BGC: Oudon Japanese Udon Noodles

We've been bowled over ramen and crazy over katsudon. The Japanese food invasion in the metro is unstoppable, and an establishment in BGC is set to win hearts of noodle lovers with their specialty: Japanese udon noodles.

Oudon Japanese Udon Noodles is a new restaurant located at the second floor of Forum South Global in Taguig and at this new spot, Udon takes center stage as it is prepared and served  in many ways. The thick and chewy noodles traditionally are served either hot or cold in Japan, depending on the season (chilled udon for summertime, udon with warm broth during winter). And just like ramen, there are a multitude of toppings that can be placed with these noodle soups; udon can also be served 'dry' and stir-fried, or come with a separate dipping sauce.

At Oudon, the selection of udon varies from traditional to modern fusion. Udon here is served in big bowls, and an order also allows customers one free refill of noodles. Signature udon at the restaurant are Sukiyaki Oudon (P500) with beef sukiyaki, Ebiten Oudon (P430) with shrimp tempura, Shabu-niku Oudon (P400) with shabu-shabu beef, Yaki Oudon (P380) sauteed with vegetables and pork, among others. They also offer udon over Japanese style curry like the Katsu-Curry Oudon (P380), and udon in cream sauce like Cream Zanmai Oudon (P500) with seafood toppings. Cold udon and modern udon as a pasta dish with salad like Carbonara (P380) and Bolognese (P410) are also available.
