Get Your Udon Noodles Fix at Oudon, Bonifacio Global City

Ramen is a worldwide phenomenon and it's no different here in the Philippines. While it's certainly hard to resist a rich, heavy bowl of ramen we shouldn't overlook one of it's tasty Japanese cousins - the udon. Udon noodles are large, chewy noodles traditionally served in a light broth. If you're craving for udon, book a reservation now to dine at Oudon restaurant in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.You won't be disappointed.

Here are some mouthwatering reasons on why you will love Oudon.

Oudon feels like a comfortable, quiet Japanese hangout in the midst of a bustling BGC lifestyle. It's a place where you can just relax while you enjoy some quality Japanese food.

The appetizers were quite delicious and there were a number items from the menu that stood out. I liked how every dish in the menu had photos, which makes it quite easy to choose an appetizer. 

First of all, you can never go wrong with fresh sashimi especially when you get it from an authentic Japanese restaurant. I mean, who can resist Salmon Sashimi (Php290) and Tuna Sashimi (Php 290)? These cuts were delicious and I really can't get enough of them. You get 5 pieces per order.

You should also try the Teba Gyoza (Php320), which are pieces gyoza wrapped in chicken skin. I can't believe how tasty and addictive these were. They were really a full burst of flavor in every bite.

The Satsuna-age (Php 280) another one of my favorite appetizers from Oudon. I really love the smokey flavor coming out of this fish. It really has a nice balance of flavors that makes you want to eat more.

You should really come to Oudon to try their authentic udon noodles. These noodles are really thick and chewy compared to any other noodle I've tasted. Quite frankly, I love its texture a lot and is perfect when paired with their light, healthy broth. If you want to try some authentic udon you should get either the Ebiten Oudon (Php 420) as shown in the photo above or the Nabeyaki Oudon (430), which are some of their bestselling udon bowls.

I really liked the Cream Zanmai Oudon (Php 500) because it had a tasty, creamy broth. If you want some pasta (although not refillable) you can also get the Basil Oudon Pasta (Php 350) which I found to be delicious. If you really want to take the flavor up a notch and love curry, you should try the Katsu-Carry Oudon (Php 380). 

I personally like really flavorful dishes so I would recommend the Cream Zanmai Oudon (Php 500), Katsu-Carry Oudon (Php 380), and the Basil Oudon Pasta (Php 350)

I really like how thick and firm the noodles were. Remember, both the soup and noodles are refillable so the price tag gets a bit reasonable when taking that into consideration.

The Matcha ice cream seems like the perfect way to finish up the meal, don't you think?

Food Quality: 4.0
Service Quality: -
Ambiance: 4.0

Overall Quality: 4.0

I recommend that you try a bowl of udon so that you can get a taste of the other noodles from japan. they say that around 80% of the customers dining in Oudon is Japanese, so that's a testament at how authentic their udon bowls are.
