I received the dashimaki set meal for ¥1270. It was large and delicious. The chilled thin udon that my companion ordered took a long time to come out and the taste was not good.


A long-established store along the outer ring.
Sometimes rice bran pickles are sold in front of the store.
Visited for the first time on a Saturday afternoon. The spacious store is nearly full.
I received the tempura soba. The soup stock was strong and very delicious. Two shrimp tempura and wild vegetables. I think it's more than worth the price.
The store is stocked with homemade fruit liquors, each costing 450 yen. There were some items that were quite old.
Weekday lunch seems to be a good deal and I would like to use it again.
I'm also happy that smoking is prohibited inside the store.

I ate tempura soba (large serving) for the first time.
It was full of volume with 2 shrimp, eggplant, white fish, shimeji mushrooms, and seaweed (*^^*)
