If you never heard about Miso Nikomi Udon and you are visiting Nagoya, then Takara shop is the best to try this unique local dish. Nikomi udon is made of Miso paste and this gives the red, brown color to the udon when served to you with a earthenware pot and normally it will be very hot. In the past this was the food the warlord Takeda use to give to his warriors to eat before the battle. The noodles for this dish also are more consistent and the texture more solid. At Nikomi no Takara they have been keeping the original recipe since their opening in 1964.
