Tasty fresh noodles

This restaurant has a reputation of freshly handmade noodles and i’ve been wanting to try it for awhile.

From the outside the restaurant is hard to find since there are curtains covering the windows and the sign is pretty tiny.

I came in for a late lunch and the restaurant is very clean and quaint. The staff was very friendly and the menu simple.

I ordered the Seiro noodles which I’ve never heard of before but they look like very thin Udon. These noodles were pretty firm but that’s how I like my noodles and they were very good. I got it with a side of chicken soup, but they have a lot of combinations you can choose from.

I would definitely go back, so good!

Seiro with chicken soup

The chicken soup was a great dipping sauce for the noodles. It had shavings of green onions which was a nice touch. There was nothing exciting about the chicken and at times the broth was a little salty.

Seiro with shrimp tempura

The shrimp tempura was nicely fried and crunchy.

Seiro with eel tempura

The piece of eel was huge and at a great value. It tasted fresh and very good.

Chicken with salt

This chicken was pan friend and crispy on the outside. Delicious with the sprinkle of salt on top.

Best hole in the wall

Best hole in the wall. The store is a bit hard to find, but once you find it, I think you'll agree that it's the best udon, soba and tempura around. They have expanded their dining area so you can have a party there too!

Superb Handmade Soba and Udon Noodles

The LA times ran an article about soba noodles and highlighted how great this authentic noodle house is. The owner makes the noodles fresh every morning. Don't expect a lot of variety, but the atmosphere is great--cozy, with jazz playing…
