Last saturday, after bought a lot of manga, I intended to surround the mall and just look around, who knows maybe I get discount again. But unfortunately, my stomach rumbling sound was heard, and well, it’s LATE lunch time. Late? Yeah, because it was already 03.00 PM, and until now I have not eaten anything, too focused buy comics. Finally, I fill my stomach in a chain restaurant that serving udon noodles as a main menu, named MARUGAME UDON.
When I arrived at the front, I looked at the menu on a board and see there is a new menu added. I was so happy when I see that Kitsune Udon was added. So, with a cheerful smile, I ordered my favorite menu with Inari-zushi, Okara donuts, and hot green tea without sugar. In the past I usually eat with friends, but this time I’m accompanied by my nendoroid from online game Touken Ranbu called Mikazuki Munechika — by fans called JIJI (in Japan term, Jiji means oldmen, because this sword age already very very old).
Kitsune Udon is an udon noodles in hot Dashi soup topped with Aburaage that has been cooked in a sweet and salty sauce. Kitsune in Japan term means “fox”, but don’t worry, this menu don’t use fox meat in the dish. Aburaage is a deep fried tofu pockets and it is often used to wrap inari-zushi. So, when abuurage added to udon noodles dishes, which are called kitsune udon because of myths that foxes (kitsune) like deep-fried tofu.
Inari-zushi is a pouch of fried tofu typically filled with sushi rice alone. It is named after the Shinto god – Inari Ookami – a Japanese kami of foxes, of fertility, rice, tea, and Sake. Both kitsune udon and inari-zushi is the favorite food of kitsune and Inari-sama. Well, for those who appetite style is vegetarian, this menus is suitable for you.
