Enni Udon, authentic Japanese noodles to enjoy
Given the number of Japanese restaurants flourishing in Paris, don’t think that Japanese cuisine is limited to sashimis and sushi… Udons, which are in Japan what spaghetti is to Italian cuisine, landed in force all over the capital. In a cold or hot version, these large white noodles, with a firm texture under the teeth and melting in the mouth, become a real must. Enni Udon, this pleasant restaurant on the Champs-Elysées, is one of the best addresses of its kind! Open the door of this refined setting to taste the authentic udons that chef Nobutaka Hayashi concocts in his open-plan mini-kitchen at the entrance. To start the meal, opt for the Udon tenzaru with tempura with vegetables and shrimp fried in an aerial paste (20 €): a real treat! Then a dish of udon noodles. We opted for a udon curry (€20.50), a generous bowl of heady and very hot curry stock, with beef, onions and lotus root chips. A must of the genre. For desserts the choice is limited, but we were very satisfied with our choice: a very pleasant dorayaki consisting of two small pancakes filled with azuki (sweet red bean paste). As a drink, the choice is on sake, Japanese beer, or even a pleasant French wine served by the glass. A very recommendable and really exotic address!
