Nadai Omen noodles
1Must Eat !
Nadai Omen noodles / ¥1,150 ( Large ¥1,300)
Dip the chewy udon noodles into soup along with sesame seeds and vegetables.
We recommend putting in plenty of sesame seed, and eating one type of vegetable at a time.
Steamed rice&grains with roast beef
2Must Eat !
Steamed rice & grains with roast beef / ¥980
Soy sauce-flavored grated daikon complements the savory "umami" flavor of the roast beef.
Accented with a bed of crisp lettuce. Pour on some green wasabi sauce if you would like to add a bit of spiciness.
Fried local eggplant&wheat cake with house miso
3Let's Try !
Fried local eggplant & wheat cake with house miso / ¥880
Enjoy the large, plump, and juicy eggplant by breaking off pieces with chopsticks.
The miso is a little on the strong side and goes well with sake.
Organic red pepper
4Let's Try !
Organic red pepper / Free *Can be purchased at the store (¥494 and up)
Recommended for diners who want to spice up their meal—try them all and find your favorite.
All four varieties are available for purchase if you find a flavor you enjoy.
