Kanda Matsuya

Delicious taste and a great smell!

This shop really feels like Japan, and has an olden day atmosphere. The noodles smelt nice and the miso tasted delicious! The after taste is refreshing! The shop was very crowded inside with lots of customers, and they only had a Japanese menu. But the waiters are very kind, so please ask them for help!

The secret taste of Kanda Matsuya

Kanda Matsuya specializes in homemade noodles. Daily training is necessary to create a taste that can only be achieved with noodles which are freshly made and boiled. The body of these noodles is the result of strict training and it takes advanced technology to make them so even. It is also extremely difficult to make them all the same thickness using only a kitchen knife. The craftsmen of Kanda Matsuya cut to a rhythm.Boiling the noodles also takes a great skill. In order to bring out the best taste, the craftsmen gently boil the noodles in a large pot full of hot water for just the right amount of time, and then they must wash them properly under cold water to make them firm. Making soba noodles without ruining the aroma or flavor is a real skill.
