Vongole udon. Stair fried! Wonder how the pho udon compares to the pho-men at Naruto.


I was hoping you'd post on okan diner today! We wanted to check it out this weekend but our schedule was already filled. Hopefully I can go soon


hope they will open for lunch & improve on some dishes


I did see the menu from Naruto Junichi.......not sure what I think about Pho-men. It's actually on my "to visit" list, but I don't get down to CV during the evenings much anymore.

I hope you get a chance to check them out soon Kirbie. There weren't many customers when I visited.

I hope so too Kat!

Patrolman Kirk! nice job!

Love the fact you are keeping the "eat on opening day" streak alive!

Taking one for team when the ocassion arises, good man!

Sometimes i wonder if you camp out, like we used for concert tickets before the internet!!

Certainly Okan original is a local treasure.


Sorry Mani - This was after the opening two dinner plans fell through....

Stood up? Bummer. Hate that.

Well, I am sure they will work out the kinks here soon. The ones that don't, know.

I am curious to see what will happen with Trade Winds.


Man... $15 for a not very big bowl of udon (and a bland one at that) doesn't seem very impressive. Hopefully it's just opening blues and things improve in a month or two. I'd love to see a udon/tampura shop open up in the style of Kagawa Prefecture.


Mr. C wanted to eat here before his flight but he couldn't figure out where...

I love shishito roulette, though!


Hi Derek - Yes, that wasn't very good...except for the noodles...which wasn't worth $15.

Hopefully he'll get a chance when he return TFD!
