Shina Soba (old-school ramen) restaurant Koya originally started out as a food stand, but now has 90 seats and serves both noodles and small sides. Their soup is made of 80 percent pork stock, 20 percent chicken stock and a little bit of salt, with no unnecessary additives, resulting in a simple and pure taste. The restaurant uses a special flat, curly noodle thinner than the standard Kishimen noodle. There's a Japanese-style room with a tatami floor in the back: try enjoying a few drinks here before moving through to the front for a bowl of ramen.
