Takashimaya Shopping Centre Basement 2 is a nice place to find all genres of food; especially Japanese ones. Tsuru-Koshi Udon is a great place for quality Japanese Udon at affordable prices.
They have a wide variety of toppings to choose from as you will find yourself staring from top to bottom at the illuminated menu. Then you will turn your attention to the promotional stands before making a final decision, hoping that your choice will be a good one.
I decided to order a Char Siew + Kakiage Udon at the price of $13.50 and top up $0.80 for a cup of hot ocha. The staff passed me a number stand and ushered me to a seat around the counter.
The prawn kakiage looked absolutely delectable at first glance. This is the first time I tried a kakiage with meat and I loved the chewy-crispy kakiage with the soft prawn meat helping to cushion some of my teeth from my over-exuberant munching.
The soup had a nice fragrance and tasted pretty light with the Udon cooked to a springy texture. Char siew slices were tender and soft to the bite.
Lao Beng’s Verdict
Tsuru-Koshi Udon is a good place for your Udon fix after your vigorous shopping workout along Orchard Road.
