For the uninitiated, Fu-men specialises in Hakata udon, originating from the Hakata district in Fukuoka. The restaurant's founder is Chef Teppei Yamashita, who was born in Fukuoka too.
The broth for its udon takes over 45
minutes to make as it requires rigorous temperature control. Plus, it is preservative-free and filled with Japanese kelp, Japanese anchovies, saba, tuna, and sardine for a layered and savoury taste! Some recommended dishes include Japanese Burdock Tempura Udon, Premium Beef and Prawn Tempura.
For a blend of both Japanese and Singaporean cuisine, their White Laksa Udon would pretty much take the cake. Yummy udon filled with rich laksa gravy, topped with fresh prawns. Their donburi rice bowls like Stamina Don and Oyakodon are a must-try too.
So, east siders, be sure to head over to Fu-Men Udon & Donburi when they open at Pasir Ris! SHARE this with your fellow Japanese foodie fans!
