How to Make Reservations At TsuruTonTan Without Giving Your Credit Card
TsuruTonTan is a popular dining destination with multiple locations in Union Square, Midtown, Boston, and Hawaii. Known for their authentic, Japanese Udon noodles - which are made in-house daily - you frequently need a reservation to visit this local favorite.
What is The History of TsuruTonTan
Udon is a classic type of noodle that was introduced to Japan from China and became wildly popular in the 1600s. TsuruTonTan is so named because it represents the sounds of eating these classic noodles:
- "Tsuru"—The sound of slurping noodles
- "Ton"—The sound of kneading and shaping udon
- "Tan"—The sound of cutting udon
In fact, in Japan, it is customary to slurp noodles, as compared to most U.S. diners who might consider slurping to be rude.
While there are many common lounges and restaurants offering a variety of different types of foods, niche' restaurants offer specialized menu items around their niche' such as Eggs N' Things (specializing in egg meals), or Salsa Con Fuego, delivering tasty Mexican cuisine.
Similarly, TsuruTonTan was inspired by a love of the simple Udon noodle, commonly made from flour (sometimes wheat flour), salt, and water. It is served all over Japan, with different regions favoring different styles of Udon meals.
In 1919, the original authentic, hand-made Udon restaurant - Honke Sanuki - was opened in Osaka Japan but the founder wanted to explore new, varied, and exciting ways to enhance the authentic Udon experience. He traveled throughout the country, seeking unique bowls to serve his Udon dishes in, and eventually expanded his restaurant enterprise to have 12 restaurants across Japan.
From there, TsuruTonTan has reached across the ocean, to have four locations in the United States.
