``Monju'' is located on platform 2 of Kawagoe Station on the Tobu Tojo Line.
A well-known store.
I ordered kakiage soba for 470 yen.
Kakiage is hot, crispy, and melts when soaked in the soup. it's the best.
The noodles (a large amount) and the soup (thick) are also wonderful. At a time when prices are so high, I can't believe you can eat this for just one coin! Seriously delicious!
It's to the point where I feel guilty eating it without telling my wife or son.
If you take the Tobu Tojo Line, it's worth eating even if you get off on the way. Manjushri is awesome!


I wanted to have a quick late breakfast, so I headed here on the platform. There were a lot of customers even though it was around 9 o'clock 😲 My expectations were rising ✨

Since it takes a long time to eat when it's hot, I chose cold kakiage soba. Thin, crunchy soba noodles with a strong flavor of bonito soup is great 😋

The prices are similar to those at large stations and tourist destinations, which means it's a little more expensive, but I'm satisfied with this taste 🥢


Since it's a chain, it's not particularly delicious, but I think it's a consistent deliciousness that makes you feel, in a good way, that it's good because it's like this.
Although it has a cheap taste, it is delicious. An image like

I really liked the atmosphere and the food was delicious.


delicious! This is about standing and eating soba. Enjoy it once.
Personally, my only choice is kakiage soba outside of the summer, but since the soba is boiled, there's a high chance that I'll have to give it some time, but of course it's delicious freshly boiled, so I can wait.
I'm sure there was a time when I had to wait for kakiage as well?
You might be concerned about the fact that it's at the very end of the down platform, close to the public restroom...
But it's probably crowded around the platform center because of this deliciousness. So I forgive you (lol)


This store is located on the Tobu Kawagoe Station platform.
Based on soba and udon noodles, there are many toppings such as kakiage, as well as rice bowls and curry rice.
The price is reasonable and your stomach will be full.
Seating is only at the counter.
