Specialty noodles and broth
The kishimen noodles are made from kneading carefully selected wheat flour with natural soft water giving them a slippery soft and springy texture. The broth is made from generous amounts of stock from seafood products such as katsuo （bonito） and muroaji （brownstriped mackerel scad） which envelopes the kishimen noodles in a rich fragrance and powerful flavor.
Signature dish that’s continued to be loved since it’s foundation
The most popular dish on the menu is named after the restaurant itself, miya kishimen （780 yen）. The miya kishimen is a masterpiece of wondrous flavor made with a broth that consists of seafood stock with light soy sauce. The basic flavor is simple but can be accented by popular toppings such as spinach, kamaboko （boiled fish paste）, salty sweet fried tofu and shitake mushrooms.
Rich dish that goes great with sides!
The Nagoya cochin chicken miso nikomi kishimen （1,550 yen） is another popular dish that is made with Nagoya cochin chicken, which is counted as one of the top three local “jidori” brands of chicken in Japan. This is one fabulous dish with a miraculous matching of tastes between the rich and full-bodied soup made from Hatcho miso, the springy texture of the kishimen noodles, and the satisfyingly juicy chicken meat.
