We’ve first been to Zen when we had an Airbnb in the area and didn’t want to hunt around for a lunch place. We’ve always had a soft spot for udon noodles: Compared to the better known, all-popular ramen they are thicker, more substantial and more “native Japanese”. They come in as many variations as ramen, though.

We tried this shop when we were coming home after a long day out, and were hungry. We found one of our favourite places.
I got the recommendation for Lon Men’s Noodle House from a colleague, and I half expected another hip asian place, with a brutalist concrete interior and incandescent lighting. It was not.
