Sekai Udon Bar is located near The Bay at Metropolis at Metrotown. It opened last year, so it is still fairly new. Sui Sha Ya, an all you can eat Japanese restaurant used to be in this spot. It’s good that there is a new restaurants in its place serving freshly made udon.
The interior is quite large so it can fit up to 100 people here.
Looking through the menu, the best choice was their Eraberu lunch special that they have on the weekend from 11am – 3pm. All you need to do is choose your rice dish, udon dish, and if you want miso soup or salad.
M ordered the Yaki Udon, Curry Croquette Don, Salad, and their chef special side dishes were a slice of orange and potato salad.
Yaki Udon has nice fresh udon noodles but the taste was pretty average. Nothing special.
Curry Croquette Don was ok too. Maybe it needed a bit more sauce to go with the rice.
I got my lunch set with Tonkotsu Udon, Chashu Don, salad and chef special side dishes.
Tonkotsu Udon has the pork bone soup broth with veggies, bean sprouts and a slab of pork. It wasn’t bad at all. I love the big thick slice of pork. It was like a bowl of ramen but with udon noodles.
Chashu Don was decent too. Good amount of pork to rice ratio.
Onsen Tamago ($1.80) is a Japanese style slow-cooked egg. It looked great but it was cold. The temperature threw me off as I assumed it would be warm.
Overall, for $10.50 for the lunch sets, it’s decent. Good, quick and filling. None of the dishes blew our minds, but it was good enough.
