Tsurumaru Udon Review

Japan is one of Asia’s best countries to offer delicious snacks and food made with fresh and creative ingredients. They can make a simple noodle dish into something fancy and tasty while incorporating the country’s culture in each dish.

⁣Items I’ve Tried 

Their menu is pretty extensive, so there’s definitely something for everyone! The takeout process was easy (all done online), and it held up well on my 20 min drive home. I tried:⁣ 

  • Spicy Hiyashi Bukkake Udon: it brings refreshing taste with its unique yuzu dipping sauce⁣
  • Hiyashi Chuka Udon: I loved the spicy umami dipping sauce, and the eggs were cooked perfectly⁣
  • Shrimp Katsu Dog: It has a soft bun, and I loved the crispy shrimp tempura with tartar sauce⁣
  • Karaage Omusube: well-seasoned just not as crispy as a full order of karaage⁣
  • Cinnamon Sugar Mochi Fries: This side-dish is addicting and chewy!⁣

Insider Advice

Thank you, @tsurumaru_udon, for hosting this giveaway and inviting me to try the new summer menu! ⁣Such a good deal and delicious option to support a local small business.⁣ I absolutely love soupless noodle dishes, so this non-soup udon menu had me hooked. These are typically served cold, but there’s an option to order it hot. The udon noodles are made fresh in-house!⁣
