If you are a fan of Asian food and you live in Barcelona, chances are you have already walked past a UDON or even already had a meal in one. UDON is a chain of bars and restaurants that specialize in Asian noodles. They opened their very first restaurant in Spain the beginning of 2004, introducing a concept that was until then, unknown in the country, despite having over 400 years of history in its country of origin, Japan. Today, they have over 40 restaurants all over Spain, offering a quick, casual dining experience while also offering balanced and nutritious meals.

Why the focus on noodles?
UDON decided to focus on noodles because they represent a health-conscious choice in the world of fast food. Noodles are a good source of carbohydrates that are easily used up by the body in the production of energy, which is reflected in the health of the Japanese people who consume noodle very frequently in their diets.
To help make their meals even healthier, UDON uses only the best and freshest ingredients, also betting on produce that have been grown using ecologic methods and which don’t have to be brought from very far.
Every meal at UDON is prepared on the spot, to guarantee the best taste and nutritional value.
