Used for Saturday lunch. On foot from Mejiro Station.
Enjoy sake and delicious soba noodles while it's still bright out.
The inside of the restaurant is Japanese-style, but you take off your shoes before entering the restaurant, and the tables are all seated so your feet can rest comfortably.


The soba lunch course is quite fulfilling,

A popular soba restaurant in Roppongi has moved to Mejiro. At the same time as the relocation, we will also be open for lunch. The new location is a short walk from Mejiro Station towards Nerima.

This is an old private house that has been renovated, and you take off your shoes before going up to the tatami room. You can see the inner garden from the tatami room and it has a nice atmosphere.

On this day, we enjoyed not only soba but also sake and soba-mae. A combination of egg rolls, chicken thighs marinated in soy sauce and sake. Tamagoyaki is refreshing and not sweet. The chicken thighs are soaked in soy sauce and are so delicious that you can even eat them with rice.

The soba was coarsely ground, but it had a strong aroma and texture, and when you put it in your mouth, a nice, fluffy aroma wafted through your nose. It's delicious even when eaten with salt. I prefer soup, but either is delicious.

On this day, I enjoyed the soba meal, but it was also interesting to compare the soba dishes. I think I'll try eating it that way next time.


Translated from Japanese:

It's been a while since I last saw you. I've been feeling excited since the end of the year, but soba restaurants in particular tend to be hectic at the end of the year, so I decided to go for a relaxing time at the beginning of the year. "New Year Soba"...

Translated from Japanese:

First visit. This is a perfect store in every way! Meals, soba, and sake. Thank you for your detailed explanation. Please see the photos to see what we ate. There was oyster soba that was only available in winter, but there was also soup stock rolls and herring...
