Udon from Hyogo braised with squid ink stock, topped with firefly squid and yuzu molecules from Boruto’s Hidden Gems of Kansai menu. The squid ink udon plays like a slinky pasta but retains udon’s slurp suction qualities while elsewhere the dish feels like a tribute to explosive squirts, with the yuzu molecules and ikura offering citrusy and salty juices to the proceedings and the squid heads readily ejecting a most delectable goo within your mouth upon bite. 4/5
