The true star of breakfast at Pie n Burger, in my opinion, are the flannel cakes, known here as “thin” pancakes. A short stack of two is enough to fill you up, though you can get an order of four when you are really hungry.
Kotohira's udon is made on-site. I order Nabeyaki Udon, with shrimp tempura, chicken, shiitake mushrooms, greens, an egg and kamaboko, a slice of fish cake that my friend refers to as fish bologna. I love that it is de regeur to slurp your noodles, but I have to admit I have left more than once with a stippling of teensy burns across my chest from the spattering hot broth. So worth it.
