This noodle shop serves up its famous "Nishiyama udon."
A look into the history of the dish reveals that it originated from a miso udon dish popular in Owari Province (modern-day Aichi Prefecture). When Izumiya first opened, the noodle dish was advertised as a "meat udon." Currently, the popular restaurant is operated by a third-generation owner.
One of the restaurant's most popular dishes is the "Chilled Tanuki" featuring extra-thick udon noodles served cold. But if you're feeling extra hungry, try super-sizing your noodles to "Ultra" or "Supersize."
