Chuka Soba Aoba Nakano

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This is the original location of a chain of chuka (Chinese) soba restaurants that centres on the Kanto region. The rich soup is based on a traditional recipe from Kyushu, made with chicken meat and pork bones and then mixed with Tokyo-style seafood soup stock. The noodles are thick and relatively straight. The menu includes four different types of dishes, including chuka soba and tsukemen, with the former being the most basic of them all, available at the modest price of ¥650. Being located in Nakano, an area known for its concentration of ramen shops, its unshakeable popularity is evidence of the level of quality found here. Not too heavy, not too light – you’ll never get tired of these offerings.
