Restaurant Discovery: Oudon

Every time someone tells me that a restaurant serves good food, I get curious. (And more often than not, I get too curious that I pester some friends to try it with me.) Luckily though, it wasn’t hard to convince my colleagues to try new restaurants and one Thursday afternoon, we decided to go to…

Oudon is a new Japanese restaurant at The Forum at Fort Bonifacio. The place, adorned with sakura, had a charming and welcoming vibe.
The dishes though are pricey as most are around almost PHP400 while the really good ones are at PHP700 to PHP800. And since I was feeling stingy that day, I opted to get Zaru Oudon with Tori Gomoku Gohan (PHP320) and Hiyayakko (PHP160).
After 10 minutes, our orders were served.
I was surprised with the size of my bowl of noodles. It was big enough for me to wash my tops! (I was a bit worried with it at first because the menu shows a small serving of noodles. But I found out that they give one free refill of noodles so I gave in.)
The noodles were soaked in water to ensure freshness (I think) and you dip it in the semi sweet dipping sauce. It was delightful and very filling as the udon noodles were very thick and my meal even had Tori Gomoku Gohan (chicken fried rice) as a side dish.
The tofu on the other hand was pretty bland. I added some ginger on it for additional taste but it didn’t help. I guess health conscious people would appreciate this. But I really prefer my tofu flavorful.
Our AVP (who treated us) ordered Potato Cheese Mochi (PHP350) for sharing and it was good too. The light taste of the potato and cheese and the chewy texture made it loveable and a group favorite.

It was one filling dinner and I would definitely visit again when I don’t feel very stingy so that I could order wagyu.

Oudon is located at 2nd floor, Forum South Global corner Federacion Drive and 7th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
