Udon Time out: The quick-service noodle spot is taking a break from its daily operations after a little more than six months at 55 Division Street. During the closure, the restaurant will overhaul its kitchen, a representative for the business says. No further details on what’s next for Udon Time were available.
A spinoff of nearby hit Dumpling Time, Udon Time was also opened by the Omakase Restaurant Group, known for Michelin-starred sushi flagship Omakase and next door Okane. The udon noodle focused restaurant debuted at the same time as the restaurant group’s wagyu-beef focused Niku Steakhouse and an adjoining butcher shop.
In a town more obsessed with ramen, Udon Time was one of just a handful of San Francisco spots to specialize in the lighter style of Japanese soup. Others include Marugame Udon, a chain with a Stonestown Galleria location, and Kagawa-Ya, an independent operation on Market Street. Those spots will have to do for now: Stay tuned for what’s next from the Omakase Group in the space this fall.
