One of Nagoya’s specialties is curry udon. The most popular restaurant among them is here at Waka Shachi Ya. Anyone from Nagoya can sing the song from this restaurant’s commercial. The creamy curry udon soup is the perfect curry udon that everyone loves.
Curry Udon Nishiki
Curry Udon Nishiki is located in Nishiki, Nagoya’s largest downtown area. The restaurant is open until late at night, and is crowded until late at night with people working at night and businessmen who have finished their drinking sessions.
