Sohonke Ebisuya, Main Store
Sohonke Ebisuya, Main Store, is a popular local restaurant where you can taste Nagoya’s famous kishimen noodles located only about a 5 minutes’ walk from the Sakae Station on the municipal subway. This restaurant was established in 1927 and specializes in handmade techniques for making noodles that date all the way back to the Edo Period. Great time and effort is put into the noodles by not only making slight adjustments in the salt content according to the season but by also leaving them to sit overnight along with other technical methods which make for noodles with an especially springy resilience and smooth texture. There is an abundance of options on the menu and whether you decide to go with kishimen (flat noodles), udon (thick, round noodles), or soba (thin buckwheat noodles), you can choose any noodles you like to go with the flavors and toppings that look most appealing.

Noodles made with traditional techniques
Sohonke Ebisuya utilizes traditional techniques that have continued unchanged since the Edo period like hanging the noodles overnight to enhance the flavor and texture of the product. These traditional techniques are put to use every day in a space where you can watch up-close from inside the store behind large glass windows.
Exquisite dish topped with full-bodied shrimp
The most popular item on the menu is the ebi-oroshi kishimen （1,450 yen） topped with grated radish and a full-bodied shrimp that is so large it overflows from the bowl it’s served in. These shrimp packing maximum volume measure around 20 cm long! The seafood stock which is made rich with strong soy sauce makes for a soup broth that gets entangled with the springy noodles and crunchy tempura creating magnificent flavors and textures to be enjoyed in every bite.
Superb soup broth with a spicy kick from the bonito stock
The curry kishimen （950 yen） is another popular item on the menu. Within the spice of the curry sauce you can also taste the strong flavor of the bonito stock which makes for a remarkable soup broth! After you’ve finished all of the noodles, we also recommend adding some rice （150 yen） to the remaining broth so you can finish the meal off as a curry rice delight!
