Journey appears a fairly good distance off the way in which issues are going… However we shouldn’t let that get us down okay! We’re really actually fortunate that lately, we will get flavours from anyplace on the earth proper right here in Singapore. Let’s take Udon for instance… Not solely can we discover an genuine model but in addition – it’s licensed HALAL too!
Working example – Fu-Males Udon. The greatest Udon we’ve ever had the pleasure of attempting is (not surprisingly) from Japan. However image this – 2 Japanese gents open up a Halal-certified eatery specializing in Udon. In my books, that’s about as shut as you will get with out really hopping on a airplane am I proper or am I proper?
At Fu-Males Udon, they concentrate on ‘Hakata’ Udon which has its origins in Fukuoka, Japan ??
An ingredient that’s attribute of Hakata Udon is Gobo (牛蒡) also referred to as Burdock Root. Right here, they coat the Gobo in Tempura batter and provides it that #DeepFriedGoodness remedy. This turns into the crowning glory in your bowl of Udon noodles swimming in that hearty broth.
The Udon noodles listed below are just a bit bit thinner than the one we loved in Tokyo (so far as I can bear in mind LOL) however they nonetheless have that nice chunk and slurp issue. The Dashi broth additionally appears a bit lighter with this Hakata Udon however undoubtedly nonetheless tasty. However the common suspects like Tempura bits, seaweed and that attractive Onsen Egg are current and accounted for.
The Gobo Udon stands out as the signature dish at Fu-Males however there are fairly a couple of others you would possibly think about. The Beef Udon is very beneficial! Or maybe the Ebi Ten (Prawn Tempura), Maruten (Japanese Fish Cake), Kitsune (Fried Candy Tofu), Rooster or Seaweed Udon could also be extra up your alley? They also have a Plain Udon (which can be nice for the youngsters!) too.
However talking of beef…
I believe the Beef is likely to be one of many tastiest issues on your complete menu at Fu-Males! Fortunately, it’s out there as a part of a number of dishes and likewise as a separate facet order. When you’re a lover of beef, belief me – order extra of the meat 😛
The Beef Tsukemen Udon is kinda like a dry model of Udon. As a substitute of the Dashi broth, you get a Tsuyu sauce (kinda like a soy sauce) which you dip your noodles into and revel in. Rooster and Plain variations of the Tsukemen Udon are additionally out there. (Looks as if bought Smoked Duck additionally nevertheless it was not out there on the menu).
Irrespective of should you’re not within the temper for noodles. They’ve a number of Donburi in your consideration at Fu-Males too! I even have a giant factor for Donburi so the subsequent time I go to, I’m going to make it a degree to have a pleasant large bowl.
The Beef Egg Donburi looks as if it was a giant hit. I do know this as a result of it was actually gone in 60 seconds LOL Okay lah perhaps not so quick nevertheless it was very evident that it was very a lot loved. Prime of my checklist to attempt is the Rooster Katsu Don. Different Donburi contains Ebi Tendon, Oyakodon and Curry Don.
Oh wait. Scratch my earlier assertion in regards to the Rooster Katsu Don. Prime of my checklist is now formally one thing known as ‘STAMINA’ Don LOL It seems to have a little bit of the whole lot as a topping together with Beef, Rooster, Tendon, Egg and who is aware of what else 😀
PS for all of the mains, you might have the choice of ordering a ‘Half’ portion in case you’re not feeling that hungry!
Aspect dishes galore to go together with your mains. Nice for sharing in fact!
The Maruten (aka Fried Fish Cake) is obtainable as each a facet dish and likewise a topping on one of many Udon picks by the way in which. And should you couldn’t get sufficient of that Burdock Tempura, that’s on the menu as a facet too. The Kakiage was not on the official menu so it was a pleasant shock.
Different facet dishes you is likely to be embody extra servings of beef/rooster, Onsen Egg, Rooster Karaage (which I kinda remorse not ordering simply now) and even Inari Sushi amongst others.
I believe there’s sufficient stuff on the menu at Fu-Males that can make you wish to maintain going again. There’s a excessive likelihood you’ll find yourself ordering the identical factor time and again when you’ve discovered your favorite although as a result of the meals is definitely actually very tasty. It’s worthy to notice that the costs are a little bit on the premium facet however then once more let’s not overlook the placement of this eatery. However on the intense facet, the meals is genuinely tasty and you may inform the elements used are of a extremely good high quality.
The geniuses behind Fu-Males are Yamashita Teppei and Toshihiro Munemori. It’s a small and humble eatery however I fairly favored it. It was solely our first go to and we sampled solely a small handful of dishes however I can actually really feel the trouble and sincerity they put forth of their meals.. in desirous to impart their meals tradition to us.
I don’t know once I’ll get to take pleasure in Udon in Japan once more.. however till then I’m actually glad that I do know the place I can get the true factor proper right here ❤️
