Sohonke Ebisuya Honten



Sohonke Ebisuya Honten

Showcasing handmade noodles by preserving tradition and legacies from the Edo period,

The most distinctive feature of the Ebisuya is the retention of traditional Nagoya noodle making methods and generational techniques.
Firstly, the handmade noodles are created by mixing wheat flour and salt water.
Secondly, the sauce is unique to Nagoya, a unique blend of "muroaji" broth and "tamari" soy sauce, made from soybeans.
Here you can enjoy specialty udon noodles, iconic to Nagoya.


Comments from SHACHIme

Top recommendations include both the kishimen and curry udon.
If you are dining in a company of three persons, it will be fun to share and experience both dishes together!


Kishimen - ¥800 (including tax)

Kishimen is a direct reflection of Nagoya’s legacy, a dish that has been passed down from generation to generation

At Ebisuya, the kishimen noodles are flat noodles which is only unique to Nagoya.
As you already know, these are handmade noodles made from scratch by the chef himself.
The soup stock is derived from a fish called “muroaji”, resulting in a recognisable flavour that belongs only to the region of Nagoya.

01The popular Curry Udon!

Curry Udon

Curry Udon - ¥950 (including tax)

The popular curry udon is a hot favourite, alongside the kishimen noodles.
Both items rank high on the menu as two of the most sought after dishes amongst its regular customers.
I have personally tried them of course and I particularly love the spicy taste of the curry, which is not too overwhelming but yet flavourful.

02The tradition of handmade Nagoya noodles

Handmade Nagoya noodles

The right amount of flour mixed with salt water is a requirement for the noodles.
The process of kneading and mixing the elements takes about 30 minutes, thereafter the dough is then thinly rolled and pulled to ensure an even width, resulting in a steady supply of formidable noodles.
