Sengoku Noodle News
The first licensed international branch of Samurai Noodle, Sengoku Noodle had its grand opening on 7/4/2012 in Jakarta, Indonesia! They are located at the address: "Rukan crown golf standart Blok A No.009 Jakarta Utara".
For those wondering: The name "Sengoku Noodle" is inspired by the warring states period of Japan, is attributed to the historic period known for its social revolution and political strife. An era of great advancements, the Sengoku period marked the height of the reign of the samurai, an association which fosters the connection between these two concepts of the "Sengoku" and the "Samurai;" this sentimentality shines through in our new Sengoku Noodle brand which continues to embody the heart and soul of Samurai Noodle.
When Sengoku Noodle first opened, they received a great response from the Indonesian market and customers! The store has seen a large flow of business since opening, and has been packed practically since the moment they opened their doors! There were initially 88 seats spread over two separate floors, which have since been reduced to 72 seats to accommodate cooking for large volumes of customers in a timely manner. To help with the grand opening, two Samurai Noodle crew members from Seattle were dispatched to Jakarta. So far they have had a wonderful time helping open the new location and working with the Jakarta crew, all of whom have the best smile and warmest hearts to welcome new customers! Even through busy 12-hour days, the Sengoku Noodle crew maintains their gumption and great attitude.

Our University District and Capitol Hill locations have begun serving the Gyudon.
Gyudon is a delicious bowl of steamed rice topped with beef simmered with onion in a sweet and salty sauce. A traditional and popular dish in Japan, Gyudon is commonly eaten with a poached egg*, pickled ginger, and Shichimi (ground chili pepper).
While Samurai Noodle’s standard Gyudon does not come with a poached egg*, you can add one to your order for $1.00. We happily offer pickled ginger and Shichimi as complimentary condiments.
* Consuming raw or undercooked food may increase the risk for food-borne illness.
