Great little shop! Good staff and quick service. I was full and happy after my meal.


I wanted to try dandan noodles without soup, so I visited Hiroshima to try it first.
It's located inside the station, so I was able to go right away when I arrived.
I ordered 1 spicy tandan noodles without soup.
Counter seats only.
They will give you a paper apron for when you eat.
I thought about adding rice and eggs, but I'm glad I didn't. Although it seemed small, I was surprisingly full.
The noodles are thin, so if you like them, this might be a good choice.
I don't really like it, so...
The seasoning was very delicious, so it would have been great if the noodles were a little thicker.
It wasn't that spicy, so I used chili oil.
I ate a lot of it.


One of the things I wanted to eat in Hiroshima was ``dandan noodles without soup.''
I didn't have much time and thought I'd give up this time, but when I searched for it, I found out that it was inside a station building, so I stopped by here even though I didn't have high expectations since it was probably on the level of a station building.
Speaking of Hiroshima, ``Okonomiyaki'' is famous, and there was a line at the okonomiyaki restaurant in front of the store, but there was no one here. I think it's not just popularity and name recognition, but also the speed of customer turnover.
I thought it was Hiroshima's new specialty, ``dandan noodles without soup,'' but it's still concentrated in the city, so I don't think it can be called a Hiroshima specialty.
Well, I stopped by this store without knowing anything about it, but it turns out that it is a combination of two stores called "Kunimatsu" and "Musashibo".
There were various combinations and toppings, but when I couldn't decide, I decided to try the half-and-half version that was written on the page. My family doesn't like spicy food, so I made it with zero spiciness...
In the end, spiciness wasn't that important, and it was still delicious even with zero spiciness.
Normal people seem to be able to choose the level of spiciness, but there are other combinations as well, so even if you're not me, I don't think it would be easy to decide...
Delivery was fast and it came out really quickly.
After it came out, I was told that the taste was different, so I would say that you can choose what you like, but I think it's better to mix different things together, but for me, it's just the customer's preference. Rather, eat our taste! I would appreciate a stance like that.
I didn't add anything, but after mixing the rice, I added some chili oil and something like dashi soy sauce.
By the way, the half & half comes with rice and a hot egg, and the rice is the same price regardless of the size.
I think the location and everything else is perfect as an introduction to Hiroshima soupless tandan noodles.
