You get curry salt with the burdock tempura. The taste is completely different without and with this salt. First taste the burdock by eating it without the salt, and then eat it with the salt enjoying the difference in taste!
These are the noodle clippers you get with the udon. Put the noodles into the clippers and lift them up, and then press the clippers together to cut the noodles. The noodles that are dipped into the soup are difficult to eat if they are too long, so I recommend cutting them shorter with these clippers.
This isn’t really a point about ordering at Yamamoto Menzou, but the staff is extremely polite, and the restaurant is overflowing with hospitality, so you should pay attention to it too.
By the end of your meal the staff say “This is on the owner” and bring you a small portion of almond jelly. Enjoy the great service at Yamamoto Menzou to the end.
