Not English friendly but worth the money and the wait.


2023.10.15 Noon: Drinking with a close friend for the first time in 9 months.
We drank sake in front of soba noodles and had a lively conversation for two hours.
You and I grabbed the steamer in one go and walked in opposite directions.

Chilled Sudachi 1300 yen Others
A soba restaurant located in a residential area of ​​Shirokane. A beautifully designed shop. I was doing it in the evening, so it was perfect.
It's a great way to have some snacks while drinking and have a stress-free time on your day off. Personally, I liked that the dashimaki egg had a lot of dashi. The duck was delicious, and the Kanzuri that came with it was exquisite.
For the final meal, the three of us made a bamboo steamer, a nori bamboo steamer, and a chilled sudachi.
It's true that it looks good, but that's not how you eat it...''As I was told, the dashi may be good, but the flavor of the sudachi leaves a bad aftertaste. It becomes bitter. I guess that's what happens when you place emphasis on visuals, but the soba noodles are boiled to a firm consistency, so it's a bit of a struggle, but it's a shame. Seiro's friend said that Tsuyu was delicious.
I would like to go again if it wasn't too expensive.
