My sister and I both love a good bowl of udon, so we decided to check out MeNami over the long weekend. MeNami, located at Yonge + Finch specializes in the traditional taste of Japanese Udon. They serve udon made in various ways (cold, soup base, baked, stir-fried). If you are in a sharing mood, MeNami offers tapas and pots (sukiyaki pot, oden..etc).
I knew that this was a pretty popular restaurant destination, but I wasn’t expecting all the tables to be filled up during the long weekend. Had we arrived a few minutes later, my sister and I probably would’ve had to wait to be seated. Luckily, we beat the rush by a few minutes and got the perfect seats! It felt like we were at an indoor patio from where we were seated.
Corn Kaki-Age – $5.00
Corn Niblets, Honey Butter Mayonnaise
I love this dish. The honey butter mayo compliments the corn niblets perfectly. I dare you to stop at just one or two! For sure you will not be able to stop! I couldn’t!
Black Sesame Puree Udon with Beef – $15.00
Beef, Schichimi, Green Onion, Red Pepper Thread, Baby Spinach
Not only was this dish visually appealing, it had a unique taste to it. Definitely not what I was expecting (in a good way).
Tempura Udon – $11.50
Shrimp, Seasonal Vegetable Tempura
Verdict: I would definitely go back! However, I would stick to ordering non-soup based udon like the black sesame or the baked udon. Those are probably more worth your money, whereas the regular soup udon you can get anywhere else for much cheaper price.
Parking: Paid street parking.
