The tempura disc.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and spring onion. The udon is interesting – not a round gauge but thick, and a little wider. The broth has a nice sweetness to it I enjoyed. The tempura is great when it soaks up the broth – very tasty. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4970083061594.
