Finished (click to enlarge). Added flower fu, kamaboko,kizami shoga, kizami nori, tempura with squid, and shichimi. Udon was about as expected – thick and chewy. Itsuki’s gauge is slightly different but still very similar to the norl. The broth was full of sesame seeds and wakane, Kind of a salty broth with seaweed notes. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.
