Restaurants, Soba Numabukuro

Numabukuro's noodle-lovers never fail to praise this neighbourhood classic, established in 1924 and serving handmade, domestic soba, fine udon, katsuobushi fish flakes from Kagoshima and light soy sauce-based tsuyu soup ever since. Although all of the above are worth trying out one by one, first-timers might want to go for the Tendon Set (¥1,550), a combo of tempura over rice and Asahian's signature soba – enough to fill up most eaters. Elderly regulars claim the taste has remained the same here since the pre-war years – true or not, this place is something of a cultural treasure in the area.
