This Tuesday was our 1 year anniversary! Thank you for all!

And one more thing. It was the last day I work at Udon West 46. I had always felt that our place is like my home. My manager was like my grandfather, executive chef was like my father, owner was like my brother/drinking buddy, and all chefs, waiters, and waitress were like my brothers and sisters. I had so much fun, precious, and unforgettable time with them since I started to work there in January. The time I spent at Udon West was just like a wonderful gift from them. I always had thought that I really want to give them back something in return and that was the reason why I created this blog.

I cannot tell them how much I had loved our place and enjoyed working. Arigatou!I will miss our customers and my family in New York.

Even though I’m going back to Japan, I will continue to edit this blog for a while because I still have many pictures of our dishes and I would like to show them to you through this blog! m

4 types of bowls are on our lunch menu. All of them come with a miso soup.

Katsu Don(Pork Cutlet Bowl) $9.00

Simmered fried pork, egg, and onion. Scallion on the top.

Gyu Don(Beef Bowl) $8.75

Marinated beef and onion. Red ginger and scallion on the top.

It does not take time to cook Gyu don as much as Katsu don or Oyako don so we recommend you to have Gyu don when you do not have much time! Personally, I like to put a soft-boiled egg on the top and it goes very well with Gyu don!

Oyako Don(Chicken Egg Bowl) $8.75

Simmered chicken, egg, and onion. Scallion on the top.
literally, Oyako Don means Parent and child bowl in Japanese.

Ten Don(Tempura Bowl) $8.75
Comes with three shrimps and vegetable tempura. Tempura sauce on the top.

Christmas is coming!

This is my favorite season of the year. I don’t like a cold weather during the winter season, but so the many lights shining and the songs give us feeling of warmth and happiness. We just started decorating our place today! I bought a chrismas tree after work and we are going to decorate it tomorrow. That should be fun. I can’t wait!
