Megami Bento-Ya Restaurant's udon soup

Megami Bento-Ya Restaurant is home to a variety of Japanese cuisine, and, as a family-run business, it just might have the sweetest staff you'll ever encounter. The low prices and savory food are enticing, and the udon soup, in particular, is worth a try. Here, the broth is infused with rich flavors and fresh ingredients. I recommend ordering it with shrimp and calamari, accompanied with scallops. 1010 10th Street, (916) 448-4512,
