Word got out on Musashiyafew weeks ago via roving Westside reporter Toddrickallen. And today, the vegetarian eater reports that the Westwood noodle bar is now open serving handmade udon noodles. In fact, the sign up front, which announces today's opening, declares the place to be the "Best Udon in America". A lofty statement indeed, but the dedication to quality noodles is undeniable. Similar to Marugame Monzo in Downtown's Little Tokyo, Musashiya makes the noodles onsite in the kitchen for everyone to observe.

The menu boasts dip-style udon, along with a variety of broths and soups that work as bases. More creative takes on udon include the carbonara, loaded up with a creamy sauce, "broth flavoring," and bacon bits. A slew of different kinds of tempura come as toppings or a separate, shareable plate.

Daily hours run 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., surely a boon for hungry office workers and college students in the area.
