Homemade Udon "Teraya (寺屋)" | Sanuki Udon & Oden restaurant | Sapporo

The oden* season has come!
It is a must food in the fall and winter time in Japan!!

* Oden is a dish in which a variety of ingredients such as tofu, eggs, white radish, fried fish paste, and potatoes are boiled together in a large pot of seasoned fish broth. Hot mustard is served as a condiment!

This is one of my favorite udon noodle and oden restaurants in Sapporo! We can eat real Sanuki udon here! Sanuki is one of the famous udon sites in Japan. Nothing is better than its very elastic and chewy udon!!!

Let's enter the restaurant!
It is packed with customers during lunch hours! If you don't want to wait for a while, please go there without the hours!

They serve variety of udon.
For example,
Yamakake---udon with grated yam
Kashiwa tenzaru---cold udon with chicken tempura
Kakiage---hot udon with vegetable tempura
Bukkake---Cold udon with some kinds of tempura

Chikuwaten tsukemen---udon with chikuwa (fish sausage) tempura
Kashiwaten tsukemen---udon with chicken tempura
Udon suki---udon cooked with sukiyaki soup and ingredients

I ordered my favorite one that I order whenever I come here! While they boil the homemade udon, I always have some oden! The oden here is very recommendable!
Look at the menu↓
They serve Sanuki oden. Sanuki is, of course, one of the famous udon sites in Japan, but their oden is also popular!

Let me see.......... What should I order????
They serve several kinks of oden such as
Chikuwa---fish sausage
Konnyaku---jelly-like food made from starch
Hiraten---steamed fish paste
Atsuage---deep-fried tofu
Ganmo---deep-fried tofu mixed with thinly sliced vegetables
Nikudango---a kind of meatball
■White radish (September to February only)
Gyu suji---beef gristle

First, I ordered white radish and gyusujii (beef gristle)!

Look at the inside of the radish! Looks very yummy X 2!! They simmer oden over half a day!!!

I also ordered chikuwa (fish sausage), hiraten (steamed fish paste) and tofu
They use chikuwa and hiraten from Sanuki or Kagawa prefecture! I really enjoyed the real ingredients, while being in Hokkaido!

On the seat at the bar, we really had a good time!

This is my favorite, "kashiwa tenzaru"↓

This is kashiwa or chicken tempura!

It's very HOT!!! I love it!!!

Look at the shinny noodles!! They are very LOOOOONG! Hahaha!
Once you eat their Sanuki udon, you cannot eat others' udon!!! Please try the tasty, tough, chewy texture!!!

You can put this tempura flakes into the udon sauce if you want!

I really love their Sanuki udon!

I come back infront of your blog. You speak about a white radish. I don't know it. I know the black radish and the pink radish, do you know them ?
Soon more questions !

>Yeah? Very Exotic Savor???
I thought a white radish was very universal!!!! It's like a long-version of turnip and a very popular vegetable in Japan!
I know a pink radish, but what??? Is there a "black" one in the world???? Amazing!!!
Your Map Girl!
