SANUKI Udon: W Automart • Domino's


It's Wesak Day, a public holiday in Malaysia. An unpleasant encounter with an overzealous restaurant in Bangi encouraged us to go in search of Japanese cuisine. It has been a very long while since we last visited Sanuki Udon in Taman Desa, and today was a good day as any to do so.

Sanuki udon is most popular in the Kagawa prefecture in Japan, and named after the previous name of the Prefecture, Sanuki Province. It is square shaped with flat edges and rather chewy texture, essentially made of wheat flour, usually served as noodle soup or kamaage (udon) in which the noodles are served in plain hot water and eaten with dipping sauce. 

The Sanuki Udon restaurant that we used to frequent used to be located on the ground floor of Jalan Bukit Desa 5, but has since relocated to the first floor.

True to form Sanuki Udon was almost full by the time we got there at 11:50am despite it only opening at half past eleven. we walked up a flight of stairs and although we dug the vibe of the new place, the open space concept of the old ground floor premises appealed to us more.

We quickly scanned the menu and promptly settled on their:

  • House Special Udon
  • Curry Udon 
  • Jelly Fish
  • Grilled Squid
  • 2 Green Tea

After lunch I took a walk around to take some footage of the place. Our delectable and savoury Japanese lunch came to RM60.40 (approximately USD13/EUR13) which in our minds was reasonably priced.

P/S: Our pet peeve – people whose English is not their first language but put on an accent so fake that it melts our earwax! We had to endure a quite torrid time seated beside a loud and obnoxious couple with said ‘impediment’.

We then walked down the same flight of stairs and hopped into BiBi, bound for Pandan Indah to ask for help with our Android Player from Daniel of W Automart. We had trouble hearing the voice directions from the Waze app if the radio is turned on.

We arrived at W Automart, Daniel who was busy with a customer asked his colleague Steven to assist with our predicament... and voila, problem solved! We then made our way home, which was about the same time the DJI Action 4 camera’s battery gave way.

By the time we resumed filming we had arrived at Domino’s Dang Wangi to collect our customary order of Beef Pepperoni as well as Aloha Chicken pizzas.

We then headed home.

We are excited for our road trip to Kuala Terengganu early next month, so please stay tuned!
