Ever since I discovered the various Shin-Sen Gumi restaurants, I have become quite a fan. My delight with the chain can be seen in my previous blog posts about Shin-sen-gumi Shabu Shabu, Hakata Ramen Shinsengumi and Shin-Sen Gumi Yakitori!
One of the things that I enjoy most about this restaurant is the various special offerings they have throughout the year. This April, I was pleasantly surprised with their Shin Sen Gumi Udon Fair at the Shin-Sen-Gumi 2GO restaurant at Tokyo Central! The fair featured sixteen kinds of new udon. Each week four different kinds of udon were featured. Some of the creative offerings I saw were udon with cheesy fondue, udon with creamy crunch bacon, mushroom and avocado and udon with curry sauce and crispy pork!
On the day I came they had a creamy tomato and seafood udon.
This creamy udon had clams in a very rich tomato broth. It had pasta like feel more than a soup. This was definitely one very unique dish.
One of the udons I got to try was the chunky beef udon.
The chunky beef udon was a very comforting soup dish. It had good warm broth, had lots of ginger and green onions along with small pieces of chunky beef. This was something different from the creamy udon.
I really enjoyed how the udons offered at the Spring Udon Fair offered something for every taste bud. If you were craving something creamy and different, they had it. Crispy meat or hearty chicken? No problem! Savory broth or cheesy fondue? They will make it!
Udon for every type and every craving! The Spring Udon Fair at Shin-Sen Gumi 2 Go, simply made me smile.
