Nadai Fujisoba: Soba and Udon Restaurant in SM Megamall

Nadai Fujisoba is a Japanese restaurant specializing in soba and udon. In search of good noodles and warm broth, my officemates and I stumbled across this Japanese restaurant located in SM Megamall. With its very authentic-looking Japanese exterior, we didn’t hesitate to try it out.

Outside, wax figures of their food are displayed giving customers the idea of how big the servings are.

Inside, the walls are covered with sketches and Japanese drawings that reminded us of manga pages.

Their staff were very welcoming, they even chant in Japanese whenever guests arrived.

Upon ordering, the staff asked us if we preferred udon (thick, wheat noodles) or soba (thin, buckwheat  noodles) to go with our dishes.

Being such fans of tempura, we ordered their Ebi Ten Soba (₱280), thin noodles on broth topped with greens and two large prawn tempura. The broth was pretty light and had a nice sweet and savory taste to it, and the noodles tasted great and were firm. The tempura, although soaked in broth, were still crunchy and not too oily, just the way I like them.

Sir Jovy ordered what the staff recommended, the Aka Fuji Udon (₱260)thick udon noodles on broth topped with beef strips, poached egg and nori, sprinkled with an ample amount of chili powder. He liked his udon so much, and according to him, its spiciness was just right.

If you aren’t a fan of hot noodles and broth, they also serve cold versions of soba and udon, as well as deep fried Japanese dishes.

Nadai Fujisoba is a good alternative to ramen especially if you love trying out something new. Prices are affordable at such generous servings. We’ll definitely come back to try their cold soba and have some more of that crunchy tempura.

    The article has the noodles wrong. Soba is thin buckwheat noodles, and udon is thick regular wheat noodles.

      Thanks for your comment. I must’ve mistakenly interchanged the two while writing.
