Motenashi Kuroki’s review 『饗 くろ㐂 (Motenashi Kuroki)』

Udon from a Ramen Master🍜😋

This time, let me introduce you to “udon” made by a master who usually runs a popular ramen shop, Akiyoshi Kuroki in Akihabara and Asakusabashi, where fierce competition exists. This project was conducted as part of the Tokai San-ken Handmade Noodle Revitalization Project led by @hashroyal, featuring “Mirai Tokachi Beef” from Hokkaido in collaboration with a butcher shop, Iseya, in Mie Prefecture. The tempura is fried in small batches, and the beef tempura is served on a separate plate. The soup is made with a combination of bonito, kelp, and mackerel stock, creating an authentic flavor. The noodles are made with 100% Chikugoizumi wheat, which is known for its chewy texture. The beef tempura is a must-try. The meat juice bursts out when you bite into it, and you can taste the richness of the beef along with its healthy texture. It’s also delicious when dipped in the udon soup. The beef rice made with beef fat is another highlight, too good to be considered a side dish. I wish they sold it as onigiri somewhere. The synergy created by the use of excellent ingredients and the skills of a master chef makes this 2,000-yen udon seem like a bargain.


An Innovative Twist on Traditional

Motenashi Kuroki takes a refreshing approach to classic Japanese cuisine, transforming hearty udon noodles into a delectable work of art. The fragrant broth, boasting a complex blend of katsuobushi, konbu, and saba, elevates the dish to new heights, while the tender, chewy noodles provide a satisfying texture. The exquisitely fried tempura adds an extra layer of indulgence, showcasing the vibrant flavors of seasonal vegetables and premium-quality beef. Whether you’re a seasoned udon enthusiast or a curious newcomer, this culinary experience promises to delight your taste buds and leave you yearning for more.
