A soba restaurant near Hamamatsucho Station and Daimon Station. The restaurant is elegant and has a slightly higher price point, so if you are concerned about cost performance, please take it back.
On this day, we had seasonal Kujo green onion soba noodles. Plenty of green onions and soba noodles in a large bowl. Mochi is also hidden underneath.
It was the perfect drink for the New Year holidays.
However, be careful of the steps in front of the cash register ⚠️ There are table seats in front of the steps.


Visited with dinner reservations. The storefront is not very nice and I have to go back and forth many times. I had a hard time finding it. Local Hiroshima Kamo Kanehide 990 yen (deep-fried tofu with sweet and sour sauce), dashimaki omelet 950 yen, squid tempura tempura 550 yen. delicious. It's a good restaurant with delicious soba noodles. Kyoto Kujo grated onion soba costs 1,760 yen. The noodles are thin and chewy, which I like. It has about the same amount of Kujo green onions as the soba noodles, boiled shiitake mushrooms, fried mochi, grated daikon radish, and fried balls. You can choose cold or hot soba, but today I had cold soba. The old man with a shaved head who was serving the customers was rather unpleasant. Soba-yu is not available.


2022.11.28 At night, I went to Kaichi near Daimon Station.
The yuzu slices are said to be exquisite, but they are no longer available because yuzu is out of stock.

We had Chikuwa Isobe Fried Chicken, Dashi Rolled Tamagoyaki, Salt Grilled Jidori Chicken, Raw Yuba Sashimi, and Seiromori.

The bamboo steamer bowl is made of thinly sliced ​​soba noodles with sharp edges that go down perfectly. The soba soup is also rich.
The chicken is perfectly cooked. The skin is crispy and fragrant, and the flesh is moist and juicy.
The fried seaweed and the dashi rolled egg are both elegant and delicious.
For alcohol, I quenched my throat with a small bottle of Akahoshi, and then had just a glass of Kokuryu Junmai Ginjo.
A wide selection of sake from all over the world.
If you ask for a glass, he will pour a sho bottle with one hand and pour it all the way to the top.
You can make online reservations through Hot Pepper, but please note that even if you only reserve a seat, you will be charged a cancellation fee.
The staff at the store aren't friendly, but they move quickly and make you feel comfortable.
Thank you for the meal.
