    どんなに大雪が降っていても寒くても福井の人は冷たいそばを食べるんだそうです。契約農家が栽培したそば粉を使用した越前そば。おろしにネギ、鰹節をたっぷりかけて頂きます。この日はソースカツ丼もセットで頂きました。こちらは甘辛のたれに、程よい厚さのお肉。美味しゅうございました。

    Fukui Pref. Echizenshi Awatabechou 26-20
    This venerable soba restaurant opened in 1871. Their handmade soba noodles made with buckwheat flour made in the prefecture are boiled to order. We recommend their oroshisoba (soba noodles topped with grated daikon radish), which combines their springy and substantial thick-cut noodles with a carefully-selected seasonal blend of four varieties of grated daikon radish. Their arabiki oroshisoba (soba with roughly grated daikon radish), which is only available from April to November, is also quite popular.

    My first taste was back in 1984 as an assistant teacher of English; the local faculty invited me to lunch there. Returns to rural west Japan (formerly Imadate, but since 10/2005 merged with nextdoor...

    空腹ではなかったので、ランチ時ではあったがご飯はやめて、車海老フライと刺身盛り合わせをチョイス。 エビフライは美味だったが、刺身は普通。というか、期待値以下。大阪でも食えるレベル。 見ると6万円の蟹とか謡ってる割に、この時代でカード利用不可とか、観光客を舐めているとしか思えない。 一見で入ったが、この店は目立つだけで、探したらもっと良い店はあると思う。知らんけど。

    おろしそばは650円が有名ですが私には辛すぎですのでざるそば800円にしましたが量は長野県よりは少なめですが腰はしっかりしていて美味しかった。

Fukui Areas

around-area-map

Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
