A disc of tempura.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, sansyo pepper, and spring onion. The udon is the standard pouch udon – thick and chewy. The broth really hits me more as a bonito broth than a shrimp one, however the tempura disc has a nice shrimp taste to it which when sopped up with the broth lends itself nicely. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901726010549.
