Mimiu 美々卯 - Calling For Udon-suki

The renowned Udon-suki was started at Mimiu Honten. This restaurant has their main branch located at the center of Osaka, and from there to Tokyo, it has more than 10 outlets around Japan.
Opening at a convenient location, we unintentionally walked in to Mimiu at Hanshin Department Store, where is just right opposite to our hotel.
The Japanese style seating give us good impression as well as the friendly waitress who has explained everything with an English menu.
Serves only what they think is the best, the menu includes multiple dinner courses, signature udon-suki and soba noodle. Each comes individually with an appetizer, sashimi, udon or soba, dessert or fruit.
The appetizer turns out to be mayonnaise dressed salad topped with a few pine nut.
While the sashimi fish are promisingly fresh, a platter of tempura is also deep fried using fish, prawns and assorted veggies.
We also loved the simmered herring that is flaky fish fillet cooked in sweet soy sauce.
Highlight of the meal is surely the Udon-suki, which is basically udon hot pot. Stock is poured into the big pot, followed by udon, chicken meats, cabbage and prawn.
By the end of it, taro and rice cake are added.
To note that they have very pretty utensils such as the little rabbit toothpick container and sea shell spoon, it is a very surprising Japanese dinner afterall.
