Kanda Matsuya (神田まつや)
Kanda Matsuya is one of the most famous soba restaurants in Tokyo. You can access from Kanda, Akihabara, Awajicho, or Ogawacho Station within 5 minutes walk. It is a long-established restaurant which opened over 130 years ago.
You can enjoy the old-fashioned, traditional atmosphere. You can see the chef making soba noodles. The staff is welcoming and nice too.
Handmade traditional soba
They make and cut the soba dough by hand which refines the texture and flavor. They also use the carefully selected buckwheat from all over the country.
Regular morisoba (cold soba noodles with dipping sauce) is 650 yen. The noodles are very smooth and rich in flavor.
Tempura soba (2000 yen) comes with two big shrimp tempura on the top. Tempura is a famous Japanese deep fried dish. You can't get wrong with tempura and soba.
They have other kinds of soba menu to choose from, such as soba with natto. They serve udon (another kind of Japanese noodles) menu and rice bowls too.
The finest soba experience!
