Spicy Miso Udon
5723 Geary Blvd., San Francisco CA 94121
Got a tickle in your throat? Dive into a bowl of spicy miso udon and your whole body will thank you. On a damp San Francisco day, when I was fighting something unpleasant, I ducked into Kitaro on Geary, my go-to sushi place. This family run operation is sandwiched between two other sushi joints, but Kitaro has won my heart and pocketbook for years. Their lunch special at $7.99 is unbeatable for the quality and quantity. They have sushi plates, the usual bento boxes and a few special rolls or nigiri – but on this day I chose the spicy miso udon (bump the tab just a little for the extra spicy). It was served along with a small bowl of salmon sashimi. I can’t tell you how this simple meal hit the spot. All I know is that my gravelly throat was grateful.
