Marugame Seimen is a restaurant of Udon (Japanese noodle soup) speciality. There is wide range of toppings that you can customize. Besides, their Tempuras are good. You can pick them up by yourself for the topping of Udon, or just eat separately.

We waited 30 minutes to be seated. They ran out of potatoes for a side dish. You get to choose your steak, cut/ grams. It came out really quickly. It was delicious. I would recommend coming here if you have the patience.

The udon is really tasty, and does not break the bank! The tempura bar where you pick up the toppings that you want (ex. 100yen for a shrimp, 110yen for an egg) is a good concept.

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
