Transfer apart sizzling canines, the Tempura Udon Canine is right here, and it’s wonderful

This Japanese fusion canine dares to go the place most worry to tread. 

One of many first bizarre fusion meals that tends to lift an eyebrow amongst international guests to Japan is the yakisoba canine, which seems like a sizzling canine, solely with yakisoba (fried udon noodles) packed contained in the roll, and no sausage anyplace to be seen.

Our Japanese-language reporter Mr Sato is at all times looking out for fusion meals that dare to go one step additional than most, although, so when he heard whispers of a Tempura Udon Canine within the metropolis, he knew he needed to get his jaws round one.

He headed off to search out it on the Ikebukuro Bread Competition, presently being held on the Tobu Division retailer in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro till 5 April.

Mr Sato scoured the stalls on the occasion till he discovered this signal, which learn:

Tempura Udon Canine 648 yen (US$5.29) every

Based on the small print on the signal, the canine comes from the Ikemasu izakaya tavern in Tokyo’s Nihonbashi, and solely 60 of them can be found on every day of the bread competition. In case anybody was confused about what a Tempura Udon Canine was, there was this signal hanging from the ceiling above the stall with a message that learn:

▼ “Tempura prawn on udon!! Anyway, please eat it!”

“Ah, I see”, thought Mr Sato as he deciphered the message from this fellow meals hunter, “what he means is you need to eat it to grasp it.” This was a person after his personal coronary heart, and Mr Sato wanted no additional prompting at hand over his hard-earned money for the bizarre sizzling canine.

▼ Including additional confusion to the fusion meal was the truth that it got here in a container with a “Nihonbashi Sandwich” sticker on it.

Sandwich, canine, monstrosity…no matter you’d classify this as, Mr Sato was eager to strive it, particularly after he lifted off the lid and located this wonderful, plump tempura prawn mendacity there able to seduce his lips.

The prawn was reclining on a mattress of thick, succulent, saucy udon, with a clump of tempura spring onions on the facet, propping it up like a pillow.

▼ The bun seemed contemporary and unadorned, with a view to enable the opposite components to take centre stage.

It actually was an excellent-looking canine, with every little thing completely positioned for the client’s consuming enjoyment. Mr Sato is not any unusual buyer, although, so how would he charge the Tempura Udon Canine?

It was scrumptious! Initially, the prawn was pure heaven — the batter was mild and crispy, because it was made by an izakaya chef, and the crunch of the tempura gave Mr Sato a craving for rice. That need for rice was instantly happy with the thick chewiness of the udon noodles, which completely balanced the tempura prawn, whereas the buns rounded off every mouthful with a softness that introduced all of the components collectively fantastically.

It was positively a high-class canine, and one which Mr Sato extremely recommends everybody strive if they’ve the prospect. It’s wonderful how far fusion sizzling canines have come since 2016.
