Namiki Yabusoba, established since the Taisho period
Founded in 1913, it is one of the three famous restaurants of the yabu style, meaning it is considered a long-established restaurant compared to other edo-soba restaurants (soba restaurants from the Edo period). As this is edo-soba, the flavor of soy sauce is rich, so it is recommended to have soba in the edokko (people living in Edo area) style which is to dip soba just a little bit into a soup. It is worth trying Zaru Soba (810 JPY), with rich soba soup, well-known for its strongest and richest taste in Tokyo. There is an English menu available.
