WG Udon Kobo at Uptown

My friend suggested that we go eat lunch at this eatery that makes their udon in-house so the udon is very fresh.
This is their set menu with 12 different sets but we can choose to have either udon or rice for each set so that makes 24 choices.

Which set would you prefer? Salmon Sashimi Set at MYR 30, Salmon Teriyaki Set at MYR 28, Tempura Set at MYR 26, Kaisen Hotpot Set at MYR 36, Tonkatsu Set at MYR 18 and Tori (fried chicken) Karaage Set at MYR 18. Each set includes a cup of green tea, a bowl of salad and 2 pieces of tamago (egg).

So many choices until I don't know which set to choose. Some items from the ala carte menu also interest me.

From the ala carte menu, the Salmon Udon at MYR 23.90 looks good.

The Salmon Don also looks good - small portion at MYR 13.90 and big portion at MYR 22.90 so if I choose this, I would definitely order the small portion.

In the end, I chose Salmon Yanagawa Set at MYR 28+ (MYR 29.70 nett). Yanagawa is a city in Japan. Salmon Yanagawa is almost like an omelette with chunks of salmon, slices of onions, slices of mushrooms in it. The pieces of salmon are tasty and fresh.

There are 2 choices for the udon broth and I chose the clear soup that is made using konbu (seaweed), katsuobushi (dried smoked tuna flakes), sababushi (dried mackerel flakes) and niboshi (dried young sardines) instead of the kimchi broth.
When I found out that there was quite a lot of sweetish soy sauce broth beneath the salmon omelette, I quickly removed it but the omelette has soaked up quite a lot of the broth so it was on the salty side. I would prefer the omelette to be served without this broth. I wonder if they will entertain my request if I ask them not to put the omelette on top of this soy broth the next time we eat here.

Total bill for 4 pax is MYR 81.20 nett. We should have waited until June 1 so that we do not need to pay the 6% GST. The food is tasty so you can be sure we will eat here again after June 1.

Since they make their udon in-house, they also sell the raw udon at MYR 10 nett for 450g which is the portion that is recommended for 3 pax.

  1. I have my eyes on the Tempura Set, those who are vegetarian can order the Yasai Kakiage Don Set

  10. Heh I wouldn't know what to choose! I find that for Japanese, I want to have a variety. Some sushi/sashimi, some noodles, chawan mushi... otherwise whatever I order, I would look enviously at what others are having hehehe.

  11. This restaurant has a cute and catchy name. I like their set menus but I always tend to compare prices with Dontaku for good deals. I will try this Min Min someday.
