Stylish soba restaurant in Yushima

In the nightlife district of Yushima(湯島), I found a new soba(Japnese buckwheat noodle) restaurant called "hayakawa(ハヤカワ)." In spite of the stylish atmosphere, the level of dishes and service is surely high. In particular, the selection of local Japanese sake is impressive! Enjoying nice side dishes with sake was so nice before eating soba.

Staff members are friendly and tried to meet our request to the extent possible. Each dish costs less than or around JPY1,000, reasonable. The taste is more than average izakaya. Soba, made by fresh buckwheat is lightly delicious and gentler on the throat. This healthy noodle is quite suitable after drinking sake! We can enjoy this restaurant until 4am in the morning. Recommendable. My rating is 3.5 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
