Enjoy your udon chilled? This summer, Udon Kamon’s serves their chilled udon in three flavors, tripling the pleasure for both your tastebuds and eyes.
The three types of udon noodles includes the white original Sanuki udon; green matcha udon made by adding Uji matcha, and the red chili udon made with Korean chili powder. Made fresh daily by executive chef Kamogi Noriyuki, the noodles are definitely served at its best texture, they are chewy but not too hard or soft. Shaped squared and a little larger than normal udon, the noodles are also easier to pick up making the whole eating experience more comfortable and enjoyable.
The noodles are served in three different offerings, let us look at them individually.
First up, the only soup offering for the tricolored udon, Beef Shabu Shabu Bukkake. Of the three noodles, the white udon tastes best with this soup as it manages to absorb the flavor of the dashi sauce fully. When one gets tired of the taste of the soup, the other two colored udon diversifies the flavour of this dish, red providing a tinge of spice in every bite, and green overpowers the dashi taste providing a fragrant matcha taste. This dish is also topped with Australia imported marbled beef short plate which is tender and complements well with the tangy noodles.
Next, Mentai Maze Udon, as its name suggests, the noodles are sauced with mentaiko along with onsen tamago. In this dish, the red udon takes the front seat as the slight spice intensifies the mentaiko taste. As the dish is mixed with egg and udon noodles, the taste of the mentaiko may not be strong enough for mentaiko lovers. Regardless, this bowl is unique for the variety of flavours.
Lastly, my favourite bowl is the Uni Maze Udon. This bowl is really addictive due to its savoury flavour and chewy udon texture. The noodles are coated in homemade Uni sauce, which is creamy and fragrant. It is also topped with fresh sea urchin from Hokkaido making the dish slight sweet and savoury. I was initially worried that the uni aftertaste would be too much to bear, however, it was okay due to the fresh ingredients used for the dish. All three types of udon taste blends in quite well in this dish, hence this is really a must try.
It was really a wonderful and unique experience with Udon Kamon as this is Singapore’s first tricoloured udon. The dishes are available from 7 June 2019. Up till the end of June, there is a discount of 50% off second bowl (lower priced of the two bowls).
