Leave Higashi-Nakano Station and you’ll soon find this small shop with only counter and loft seating. The menu is based around food from Tokushima, such as Tokushima specialty takechikuwa (a tube-shaped fish cake baked around a bamboo stick) and the popular cheap-eat fish-katsu (a deep-fried breaded fish cutlet). The main item on the menu here, however, is Tokushima’s local somen, handa somen. Handa somen is made with thicker noodles which have a satisfyingly firm bite, and are rather filling. There's also a wide range of other noodle dishes on the menu, including curiosities like deka-kitsune onmen, abura somen and inaka bukkake.
