Perfectly Firm Soba Noodles at a Traditional Japanese Style House

Misoka-an Kawamichiya

/ 晦庵 河道屋
Misoka-an Kawamichiya
Established in 1688, “Misoka-an Kawamichiya” is a Soba restaurant of old standing with a history of over 300 years.
The shop is built in a Japanese traditional style of wooden architecture, called Sukiya style. Upon entering, you will notice the faint, pleasant smell of wood. It’s an old-fashioned Japanese style house that can rarely be seen nowadays. The menu mainly consists of a few kinds of Soba and a la carte dishes. We recommend that in the good old Japanese atmosphere at “Misoka-an Kawami...morechiya,” you first enjoy some sake and a dish of your choice, than order some Soba to wrap it up.

There is rarely any restaurant that serves firmer Soba noodles than this one. The best way to enjoy it is to slurp the Soba quickly to enjoy the quick sensation in your throat! However, watch the sauce so it doesn’t get on your clothes.

Thicker and tougher than normal Soba, every bite is full of flavor. Delicious with the strong tasting sauce and crunchy and delicate oils of the Tempura that enhances the harmonious taste.
