Udon machine moved to Asianfoods

Today the authentic Japanese Udon machine – the only one that exists in North and South America – moved from pequeñITO to Asianfoods in Montevideo. We are sincerely happy that in the near future you can still enjoy authentic Japanese Udon (Sanuki style), Goto-Udon and Ramen in Uruguay. We wish Miguel Diaz with Asianfoods only the best of luck!

Last opportunity for course: Basics of Japanese Cuisine

Over and over again we get the question again if it is really true, so let us confirm again:

Yes, January 30th is the last business day for pequeñITO.
Yes, we are completely booked and the waiting list is now up to 30 groups.
Yes, the sickness of Sibylle’s parents is the reason for shutting down and moving to Switzerland.

On the other hand, we have good news a well. February 1 and 2 from 18:30 (Feb. 3 fully booked) we will have for the absolute last time the course “Introduction to Japanese Cuisine”. For those interested, send us an email or contact us under this link.

Thank you for your understanding and our apology for all the inconvenience caused.
