Ne-no-Tsu 根の津

Altough Kamachiku remains my favourite, Ne-no-Tsu is another excellent udon restaurant in the same area. It serves sanuki udon, which comes from Kagawa-ken, Shikoku. The noodles are thick with a squarish cross section and they are served either hot or cold.

All the usual suspects are available, such as agemochi (grilled rice cake), tororo (yam), tempura, duck and kitsune (sweet and salty deep-fried tofu), but for me a simple bukkake is the best. Ne-no-Tsu bukkake is served with thinly sliced green onions, grated radish, sesame seeds, tempura batter pellets and a generous portion of ginger.

Ne-no-Tsu is on a narrow back street leading to Nezu shrine, just off busy Shinobazu road. The closest station is Nezu. A yellow noren curtain marks that the restaurant is open for business. A more telling sign is the queue, which alerted me to the restaurant in the first place. There are only four tables with the capacity for about 20 people and Ne-no-Tsu and the whole area gets extremely crowded when the famous azalea bushes are blooming at Nezu jinja in April.
