So there is a new restaurant in town called Guriru Udon and it’s on Jl. Kaliurang Km.6. It’s a little bit north from Jl. Kaliurang’s ring road intersection and on the right. Back when its 2-days-grand-opening, I had chance to enjoy their menu promotion by having free bowl of udon or donburi. When I reached there they said the donburi was still on cooking process (maybe they ran out of donburi due to over demands) so I had udon instead. It’s a great opportunity and since it was still new business, I hope they last forever.
My Experience At Guriru Udon
Regardless on serving udon, donburi, and other japanese cuisine, Guriru Udon use different interior design. It’s not like what you expect for a restaurant that serves japanese dishes. The interior design is more like simple, minimalist, but it’s just simply rustic with giant glass wall and metal flooring. I don’ know but probably they’re still adjusting to some stuffs including their interior design since it’s still newly opened business.
This is what I got that day, curry chicken katsu udon..
I’ve never tried local udon before but I’ve tried one when I was on vacation. I don’t know how and what authentic bowl of udon taste like but this bowl of udon was pretty chewy. I didn’t expect udon to be that chewy but it’s no problem after all. The curry broth is too bland and watery. It would be way better if they can make thicker curry broth and with stronger taste. The chicken katsu was delicious but if I got that for regular price, that was overpriced for sure since the meat was smaller than I expected. The chili mixture (flakes with nori and green onion) was pretty spicy. What I really deplore was the ice tea. It was not really worth it because they served small size tea for double the price (in common for similar size).
I hope this was just the beginning for Guriru Udon since they may still undergo a lot of adjustments. I believe this business has lot of potentials so I expect to see better quality for everything. There are some rooms for more improvements. A bowl of udon seems too little for a portion but rest assure, for an average eater it could be filling. Anyway, I’m gonna end my review here, pay my blog daily visit for routine foodie and gaming update, leave me some comments below, follow my Instagram account @bitethefood, and see you next time!
