Been wanting to try out Shibuyatei for awhile. It’s a one man show, run by an older Japanese gentleman. Not really by anything but it is a stone throw’s away from FoodyWorld.
We dropped in on a Saturday (around 1:00pm) and were the only customers there. The inside is tiny with only four tables and a TV playing the most random things (it was on prostate infomercials for a long time before the chef changed it to the news).
The menu is up on the counter; mostly larmen, Japanese curries and deep fried meats. The larmen is limited to 20 bowls at lunch and another 20 at dinner time.
Several signs up inside that claim no MSG is used.
1/2 tamago, chashu, bamboo shoots, corn, bean sprouts, spinach and green onion. The shoyu broth was on the light side. We liked that the noodles came out firm (without having to ask). Chashu wasn’t the usual/normal style; a touch thicker but tender. You only get one piece though.
The bowl won’t blow you away but decent.
Beef curry udon ($11.50)
Beef slices, onions and tofu puffs. Not many places where you can find curry udon. Only other place I can think of is Hi Genki. This one was pretty solid; curry had a slightly more “kick” than the norm.
Quaint, homey Japanese food. Would come back again to try a couple more dishes.
