TsuruTonTan

Venue Info

Japanese udon chain TsuruTonTan's first US location is right off Union Square, where it's making a strong case for the thick, hand-made noodle that's considered one of Japan's national dishes. The chewy udon noodles are made from a flour and salted water mixture that's kneaded, stretched, and cut into thin strips, then served in a variety of ways: with fish and vegetable tempura in dashi seafood broth, accompanied by katsu pork cutlet and creamy curry, or cold and in a spaghetti-like mound with fresh uni sauce. The menu, which helpfully features photos of various dishes, also includes donburi rice bowls and sushi appetizers.
