Excellent Atmosphere, Taste, and Location
Many Sanuki udon shops are called “self udon shops,” meaning that you go in, order and pick up your udon and tempura from the order counter and take it back to your seats. It’s customary for Kagawans to eat udon very quickly, sometime slurping their noodles down in minutes. Shinpei udon, however, is similar to a restaurant where a waiter comes and takes your order. This atmosphere is great for people who want to take their time and enjoy the Sanuki udon experience. Whether you order the most basic (and most popular) kake udon, or one of Shinpei’s original udon creations such as green curry udon or Taiwanese fusion udon, you will appreciate the great atmosphere that matches the amazing taste.
In addition to having a variety of interesting types of udon and an English speaking staff, Shinpei udon is in a convenient location for people visiting Takamatsu. It’s about a 10-minute walk from Kawaramachi Station (Kotoden Line). Since Shinpei udon is located in the shotengai (shopping arcade), many tourists like to walk from the Takamatsu Castle Ruins and enjoy a pleasant stroll through the many old and new shops. Sanuki udon is perfect for lunch after window shopping and exploring the heart of Takamatsu City.
