Although there's a surfeit of restaurants from which to choose in the largest and oldest Japantown in the country, Mifune belongs at the top of the list. The noodle house is always busy for good reason: tasty traditional udon and soba noodles at affordable prices. Served hot or cold, the large portions are hearty and heartwarming. Choose from a wide range of ingredients to fill your soup—from chicken, shrimp, soft boiled egg and vegetables to sliced beef, scrambled eggs and green onions. Other traditional Japanese dishes on the menu include sushi sukiyaki, donburi and Shabu-shabu. The dining room is large and unassuming. The draw is the food and attentive service, not the ambience. It's open daily from 11AM to 10PM, making it a great place to grab grub before taking in a movie at the Sundance Kabuki Theater or strolling along nearby Fillmore Street.
