Only 2 minutes from Omotesando Station, you will find a soba restaurant which seems to have suddenly appeared 3 years ago. Since its opening Miyota has been going strong; there is a line-up at any hour of the day. What seems to be their secret? We went to check it out for ourselves!
Miyota in Omotesando has a line-up at anytime of the day!
A slightly high-end eating-while-standing soba restaurant
On the menu, it says that they are particular about the ingredients they use, such as the buckwheat, the fish sauce, the rice, the tempura and the spices. That is to say, they use high-quality ingredients which are prepared with care.
Although there's a line-up, you never have to wait very long!
Also, looking at the menu, I was surprised to see a lot of dishes only cost about one coin (¥500).
A bang for your buck! The popular soba & donburi set are under ¥1,000!
About 5 minutes after placing my order, I was served a huge portion. I even wondered if I had a mistake with the size. I asked to make sure and I did order the normal size, it's just that the portions are very generous!
For ¥840, you get that much food, I'd say it's quite a good deal!
Check out this soba dish!
Their soba is very fragrant and tasty because they grind the whole buckwheat grain to make the soba, this also gives it a nice texture.
What is considered a regular-sized katsudon is a small size at Miyota!
If you order a katsudon at any other restaurant, this is what they would serve you as a regular portion. On top of a bed of rice, there are three thick pieces of deep-fried pork mixed in with eggs and onions.
The rice is soaked in a nice dashi taste, which makes you feel like you can eat it infinitely.
The restaurant serves cheap and tasty food, the restaurant is clean and the service is quick! What else can you ask for! Now I know why there's always a line-up.
If you have an appetite and don't want to spend a fortune, be sure to check out Miyota for yourself!
