Cambridge's Little Japan

Experience Cambridge's tasty fresh udon restaurant

Take a trip to Little Japan at the Porter Exchange Mall in Cambridge. A mall full of tasty restaurants. You'll find ramen, udon, sushi, and sweets. My favorite restaurant is Yume Ga Arukara, which means "because I have a dream". A restaurant where the chef makes fresh udon by hand. You can have noodles hot in a dashi broth or cold, with beef or without. A tradition at the restaurant is to call out "Perfect" or "Very Good" depending on well you did. I asked the waiter what will happen if you couldn't finish. He said they just tell you "thank you". Make sure you get there early because there is always a long line. Sometime they sell out and closes early. After your dinner you can enjoy mochi at Yotopia next door. Or spend time visiting Tokai, a Japanese knick knack shop filled with cute kawaii anime stuffed animals. This place makes a great place for date night on cold winter days.
