[Tokyo] Itteki Hassen-ya Shinjuku Honten (一滴八銭屋 新宿本店): High-Quality Sanuki Udon Delights in Shinjuku


Udon Oasis: Itteki Hassen-ya’s Crafted Symphony of Flavor

Itteki Hassen-ya stands as a sanctuary for Sanuki udon enthusiasts, epitomizing a profound dedication to their craft. The heart of this establishment lies in their meticulous approach, exemplified by extending payment courtesy even for a single droplet of their carefully crafted broth. Guided by three core principles, they prioritize freshly boiled noodles, showcase innovative udon creations, and maintain an unwavering artisanal touch in every preparation.

As twilight descends, the menu transforms into a tapestry of gastronomic wonders. However, during lunch, the spotlight is exclusively on the enchanting world of udon. The 2nd and 3rd floors pulsate with culinary passion, drawing patrons eager to relish the restaurant’s signature dishes. The menu, a treasure trove, offers both warm and cold udon, each serving as a testament to the proprietor’s craftsmanship from Shikoku.


One of the culinary highlights is the “Shironiku Udon,” a miso-based masterpiece infused with the essence of pork bone broth. Sautéed pork and ginger engage in a simmering dance, striking a harmonious balance between opulence and refreshing surprise. Another popular item is the “Kashiwa Ten Bukkake,” featuring peppery Daisen chicken thigh tempura.


For the adventurous palate, the “Half & Half” option allows a celebration of two selected udon varieties. A culinary tip: indulge in this experience for an additional ¥250, transforming your order into a lunch set with rice and the day’s delectable side dish.
