Unless they're promptly eaten, noodles will slither about the kitchen committing acts of culinary mischief such as switching out Splenda with real sugar and skinny dipping in open jars of marinara sauce.

A haven for authentic Japanese cooking, Dondon speedily serves up savory udon noodles and donburi-rice bowls mixed with mouthwatering medleys of meats, vegetables, and spices. Diners can tongue-twirl the noodles of onion-stewed beef curry udon ($5.95) or let hamburger-don's egg and veggie-flanked meatloaf serenade them with a Japanese rendition of "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)" ($5.95–$7.95). Herbivores are satiated with vegetarian versions of traditional udon dishes ($5.95), as well as palate-pleasing portions of red-bean ice cream ($1.25–$2.25) and mermaid-harvested seaweed salad ($1.25–$2.25).
