Only 30 seconds from Meiji-Jingumae is Menya Haruka, a branch of Menya Hanabi

Only 30 seconds away from Meiji-Jingumae, you will find Menya Haruka.
This restaurant is a branch of Nagoya's Menya Hanabi, which happened to win Nagoya's 2013 grand prix in the food contest!

This resto does not serve traditional mazesoba, but mazesoba made with fatty chashu and whichever topping you choose!
If you want to have delicious Taiwanese mazesoba, be sure to stop by here!

You have to try this mazesoba dish!

Menya_Haruka-_Mazesoba_dish
The original mazesoba, regular size ¥850/ large ¥950 (taxes included).
This is the restaurant's most popular dish!
Every ingredient is prepared with the uttermost care; the noodles are made with whole wheat at Sapporo's noodle-making shop, the "negi" (green onion) and nori are imported from Kyoto, etc.

The minced meat is spicy and well-seasoned. And the negi, as well as the chive, add a nice accent to the mazesoba. Just the smell is sure to whet your appetite.

The rule to eating mazesoba correctly is to mix it while it's hot!
What makes this mazesoba so delicious you might ask? Their secret sauce, their chewy noodles and when all the ingredients are mixed together you can taste the umami of each of them in your mouth.

When you're done with the noodles and some of the ingredients are left over, you can order some rice for free to make it a Taiwanese-style risotto.
They will bring you some white rice that you can mix in the remaining ingredients and the combination is awesome!

Whenever you eat mazesoba, you'll always have some meat and vegetables with sauce leftover, so this is the tastiest way to finish up your plate.

Try the kombu vinegar for a change of taste!

Menya_Haruka-_condiments
You normally wouldn't find "kombu" (kelp) with mazesoba.
It is made with fermented kombu and chilli pepper and is used to adjust the taste of the mazesoba. It's actually not spicy, but slightly sour so you can add it if you find the mazesoba to be too spicy.

So many toppings to choose from!

This bowl is made with vegetables, green onions, mizuna, and lots of chashu! If you're a meat-lover, this dish is a must-try!
