    Gourmet / Alcohol
    Gunma Pref. Tomiokashi Shimokuroiwa 595
    "This restaurant's famous silk udon is near to the World Heritage Tomioka Silk Mill. It uses a blend of wheat from Gunma Prefecture's Norin No. 61 and Hokkaido-produced wheat paired with silk protein solution from Tomioka Ainota's 100% natural cocoons to create silky smooth yet firm ""Cocoon Udon"" noodles, which go outstandingly well with tempura. These flat ""Okkirikomi"" noodles, made by mixing wheat with silk protein are a seasonal limited product, and are excellent with green onions, which are softer and sweeter in the colder seasons, and French duck in the restaurant's extremely popular autumn and winter-only Duck Kirikomi menu item."
