Nijiya Market- Noodle Station

Here’s a quick dining post for Wednesday because once again, time seems to have gotten away from me.

I shop at Nijiya Market about once a month and I’ve been wanting to try their Udon/Soba noodle station for over a year now. While meeting up with CC for a quick lunch, we decided to get food at Nijiya. She got some of their prepared prepackaged items and I finally got to try the Udon.

For only $3.50, you get a bowl of udon along with some complimentary toppings: seaweed, bonita flakes, green onion and fried wheat. You can also get some premium toppings for an additional cost. I was happy to see how they really piled on the toppings.

There are benches and tables outside the store where you can enjoy your food. The noodles were cooked just right, maintaining their chew and bounce. The broth was fairly one dimensional, but I didn’t have high expectations for $3.50 a bowl.

Here is a shot of CC’s food.

Overall, I thought this was a good quick and cheap bite if you’re hungry and in the area. It’s not worth a special trip, but if it’s convenient and you need something fast and filling, this is worth a consideration.
