Since Lemi is about local secrets, hidden gems, let me give you another one. Yukitei was actually made famous in Japan by a comic book because of their special Potato Udon. Kutchan (the town it’s in) is famous for being a potato farming town. I come here at night, however, for their killer value Shabu Shabu or Sukiyaki sets (comes with Udon), and their ohsogood Ramen Salad. Don’t leave here without trying it. I come in the evening because they close a little later than other places. Their last order is at like 8pm (or 9, can’t remember) and they usually have space. It’s also... actually... so cheap. It’s higher quality than anything you’d find in top restaurants, and cheaper than anything too. It’s just. A total gem. But their ambience is simple, their service is simple, and you could be entirely just fooled by that to think it wasn’t good. For lunch, just come for their Udon sets. Yummmyyyy!
