Tamoya (Liang Court)

There are plenty of ramen specialty shops in Singapore but udon? Here you have Tamoya, established in Kagawa in 1996. Udon noodles are typically served chilled in the summer and hot in the winter. In a fast-food chain setup, you first decide on the kind of udon you want. Then, choose the additional toppings you want. Lastly, pay! 

I got a Kake Udon ($4.80 for regular sized). This is the most basic type of udon which is in a light dashi stock. It may look like a small portion, but after all that extra ingredients that you are going to add, it will not be as small as it looks! The udon is made from 3 different types of flour and is very chewy.

Like excited school children seeing plates of golden deep fried goodness, we loaded these deep fried food on our plates to share. Deep fried mushrooms, deep fried eggplants, deep fried everything. There was a slight problem here though- some of the food has been left in the open for too long and had therefore turned cold and lost its crisp. 

The tempura prawn ($2.50) is addictive. Larger than usual prawn tempuras, this is something you can't miss.

After sharing all the deep fried items, it came up to about $8 per person. How's that for a good and cheap Japanese meal?
