Gaijin Gourmet! Awesomely Delicious Udon in Kamiyacho, Tokyo!

I found the one of the best places to eat udon in Tokyo. It is near Kamiyacho station on the Hibiya line. It is very cheap but extremely delicious. The restaurant is named "Takamoto Seimenjyo." It is a udon specialist restaurant. I've been there three times and was impressed every time with the quality of the food, the taste and the very good prices!

Fried Squid and udon with inari (sweet rice ball)
¥620 (about $7.40) for a delicious & healthy meal. 
Can't be beat for the price and tastes delicious!

The basic bowl of udon is ¥280 (about $3.20 US)! That's amazing! 

Show up after 1 pm every weekday and you get a bowl of rice free of charge!

This place ROCKS!

I wonder if any of those soba dishes are vegetarian (or free enough of chunks that I can pretend to myself it is). I suppose I can always ask.

Looks good!
