Takeuchi Udon Ten is different. Their noodles are thicker, more elastic and heavy but at the same time delicious. The shop has been the favorite for a legion of fans through the years and their quality has been always very consistent. The shop is located between Umeda and Yodo river. They have the classic hot and cold udon but also tsukemen and they mastered they combine very well with their fried chicken, squid and veggies. This is a special recommendation for Japan Gourmet Pass members. NOTE: This shop is very popular and may close earlier if they run out of noodles.
