Sakurada Yerevan – Udonlicious

Restaurants

Yes, udon noodles are being prepared in Yerevan, Armenia, in "Sakurada", and they are oishi (delicious in Japanese)!

I love noodles. Doesn't matter what kind: Soba, ramen, udon, glass noodle, somen, lo mein, Italian pasta, Armenian arishta. I love them all. Imagine my surprise walking into an unimposing, quaint Japanese restaurant located underneath a staircase at the intersection of Abovyan and Nalbandyan. Once you open the door, you are transported to Tokyo. In fact, the founder and former owner of Sakurada was Japanese!

Sakurada is famous for its homemade udon noodles. Yes, udon noodles are being prepared in Yerevan, Armenia and they are oishi (delicious in Japanese). I personally enjoy the Kakiage Udon, which is a flavorful udon noodle shop topped with a mountain of vegetarian tempura (see the picture above). Other than udon, Sakurada offers a wide array of other Japanese delicacies.

As they say in Japan, meshiagare!
