kanda yabu soba

My dad and I spent a day shopping at Kappabashi (a street filled with kitchen supply stores) near Asakusa during our stay in Tokyo. Unfortunately it was a holiday but many of the shops I wanted to go to were still open that day. We had a successful couple hours gathering kitchen supplies and before we knew it, it was already 1pm. My dad used to live in Tokyo for a few years so he suggested looking for something in the Kanda area.

I did a quick search on my phone and we found the area had many soba restaurants. Our first choice had a line out the door even though it was already 2pm. But there was another popular place around the corner. The restaurant was already crowded but we came at good timing and got a table right away. I ordered the yamakake soba (grated yam and soy sauce over soba) while my dad ordered classic soba (seirou soba) with aiyaki (duck and green onion pan fried). I’m not a big soba fan but this was delicious and the noodles were easy to eat. Maybe I was really hungry too. The portions might be considered on the small side but  it was a good choice for a late meal since it wasn’t too heavy.


東京にいた時、お父さんと合羽橋で調理器具とベーキング用品を探しに行きました。祝日だったけど、行きたい店はほとんど開いてました。数時間買い物をした後、気づいたらもう午後1時。お父さんは昔東京に住んでいたので、神田でお昼ごはんを探そうと言いました。

携帯で検索したら神田はカレーと蕎麦屋が多いそうです。二人とも夜ごはんの約束があったのでカレーよ軽い蕎麦を食べることにしました。最初に見つけた店は2時なのにまだ行列ですぐ近くにあったかんだやぶそばに。店は混んでたけど、タイミングよくすぐ座れました。私は山かけ蕎麦を注文しお父さんはせいろう蕎麦とあい焼き。蕎麦はあまり好きじゃないので普段食べないけど、とても美味しく麺も食べやすかった。
