After visiting the Picasso museum recently my brother and I decided to stop off at Barcelona's first noodle Bar the UDON for a light lunch.
Based only five minutes walk from the Picasso Museum at the junction of Calle Montcada and Princesa the UDON offers a stylish, light and refreshing atmosphere in which to enjoy a good selection of Japanese noodle dishes.
The UDON interior has been designed using the principles of Feng Shui which adds to the authenticity of the restaurant.
Although busy when we arrived, we were quickly shown to our table and presented with the menu. The service during dining was attentive which is a refreshing change from the rather indifferent service that we are accustomed to here in Barcelona.
|Main noodle dish - Tofu Soba.|
We decided to keep it simple and opted for a single main course noodle dish each. I opted for Tofu Soba - a traditional Japanese noodle dish consisted of soft tofu, thin buckwheat noodles, nori green seaweed and Japanese onion. Whilst Bro decided to have Beef Ramen with Chinese-styled noodles, marinated veal, lime and coriander and green beans.
I opted for mineral water to keep it simple while Bro decided on a glass of red wine (presumably to complicate things).
I must say that the noodle dishes were delicious and the spotless clean-cut atmosphere really added to the experience.
Once again top marks to the UDON. Our main course noodle dishes were €9.95 each plus drinks - water at €1.75 and a glass of red wine €2.65 making a total of €28.70 for the entire meal for both of us.
One of the house rules is no-smoking which we were pleased about. The Spanish are still very fond of smoking so it was a refreshing change to be able to enjoy our food without suffering from a smoky environment.
If you are a fan of noodles, like I am, then I can highly recommended the UDON as a first class noodle Bar / restaurant in Barcelona.
