No money,no time and get hungry!

At such times,I go to this restaurant:Hanamaru udon

Actually this is not a restaurant.What can I say such a restaurant.
Well,it's just a eating spot.

This is a chain store.So you can find this easily:)

This shop has some staffs though,you bring what you ordered to the table.
It's called "Selfservice" in Japan.It's Japanese-English,so you don't care!

I tell you how to order:)

1,Hold the tray and the plate.
   Then,there are many kinds of side dishes,like tempura,onigiri..(please look the picture below)

2,Pick up the side dish you want to eat and put it on the plate.
   This time,you use the tongs.

3,When you come in front of the staff,order Udon you chose.

   Sample dialogue
   staff:Have you decided your order?(Go chumon ha okimari desuka?)

   you:A small size "Kake",please.("Kake" no sho kudasai)
   ----Blue is udon's menu----

4,The staff bring the udon on your tray.
   Then,you pay at the cash register.

5,If you want water or hot/iced green tea,you bring it by your self.

6,After eating,the tray you used you bring the return place by your self.

That's all:)


Side dishes:D

Typical menu in Hanamaru Udon.I recommend you "Kake Udon"(red star).
Because it's simple and the cheapest.The small size is only 100yen.Can you believe that?
Plus I eat some side dishes with Kake udon usually:)

This picture I went was in business town and it was Saturday,so there weren't customers.
But this is really popular,delicious and cheap:)

Please try to eat//


  1. Ohhh! It looks so delicious! I really want to try it! Can you find it everywhere in Japan? Nice!
    Thank you for the manual! :D

  2. それはおいしそう!食べたい :)
