Don’t let the fact that TsuruTonTan is a big chain in Japan steer you away: this noodle brasserie, which just opened its first US location here in Union Square, is serious about noodles. And not just any noodles, but udon noodles, which they make from scratch in-house every day and feature in bowls ranging from mushroom and egg to shrimp tempura with anago to their infamous mentaiko caviar offering. Don’t get too attached to anything, though: they switch up the menu regularly, offering more than thirty udon options at a time.
