    Ehime Imabari-shi Hakatacho Kinoura Ko 1650-1
    A ramen restaurant established in 1971 located right in front of Kinoura Port on the southeastern side of Hakata Island. Dedicated to expressing Setouchi through flavor, the restaurant's shio (salt) ramen made with Hakata Island slat is popular with cyclists and tourists. The restaurant's ramen consists of thin, straight noodles and a light broth crafted with 17 ingredients whose full flavor is brought out by the salt used. The restaurant also serves Iyo shellfish rice made with an abundance of Japanese bay scallops and littleneck clams; and Igisu tofu, a local Shimanami dish. One of the restaurant's biggest charms is its lineup of dishes which allow you to fully experience the local flavors of Hakata.

    If you want to review about shimanami cycling way, you cannot talk around salt in Hakata island. Salt ice cream, salt miso soup...and this. Salt noodleshio ramen塩ラーメン

    "This seafood restaurant is located approximately a seven-minute drive from the Imabari-Kita Interchange on the Nishiseto Expressway. The large windows overlook the Seto Inland Sea, and you can see the Kurushima-Kaikyo Bridge from any seat inside the restaurant. Their taimeshi-don (sea bream rice bowls), with plenty of sea bream sashimi and paste, and seafood rice bowls using seven kinds of sashimi in a luxurious style are popular limited menu items. Their ""Ladies Set"" that comes with kamameshi (rice, meat and vegetable dish served in a small pot), gratin and sorbet or coffee is also highly recommended."

    Ehime Pref. Matsuyamashi Sambanchou 3-5-4
    You’ll find this longstanding local restaurant in Sanban Town, Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture. It opened during the Kanei period. Enjoy some traditional Ehime cuisine amid the subdued, authentic Japanese ambiance, such as sea bream somen noodles, sea bream rice, jakoten (a kind of fried kamaboko), and more. The sea bream somen noodles are the restaurant’s signature dish. They come with a whole small sea bream on top and feature “five-color somen,” which is a favorite in Matsuyama. There are also plenty of fish from the Seto Inland Sea and local vegetables and meat dishes that go well with local Ehime sake.

    This goods shop&restaurant is located in front of the Murakami Suigun Museum on Oshima Island at Shimanami Kaido. Their cuisine highlights lively seafood raised in the harsh tides of Shimanami Sea, and at a reasonable price.

Also at this restaurant, you can enjoy the experience of the tide at Shimanami Kaido at 10 % discount.

    Come enjoy traditional Southern-Ehime Taimeshi, rice with sea bream in this Japanese-style restaurant. In the central (Chuyo) and eastern (Toyo) regions, grilled whole sea breams are cooked with rice, but in the southern (Nanyo) region, around Rinsuke here in Uwajima, it features raw sliced sea bream which is placed on rice along with a special soy-sauce based sauce and egg yolk. Many restaurants will dissolve the egg yolk in a dashi fish broth, but here along with shredded nori and ground sesame seeds, a whole egg yolk is placed on top of the fresh sliced sea beam that completely covers the rice. Another popular menu item that is also served with their special sauce is a boiled barley and rice dish mixed with grated yam.

    This well-established sweet shop first opened in 1949. Having been featured in a variety of media outlets and television programs, this sweet shop draws plenty of customers from nearby Matsuyama as well as from all over the country. One of their popular options is the Goshoku Ohagi, (five rice balls coated with different flavors, which include coarse sweet red bean paste, strained bean paste, roasted soybean flour, green dried nori seaweed, and sesame), and small-sized rice balls which matches the pleasant sweetness with nice and gooey glutenous rice are their specialties. We recommend enjoying Goshoku Ohagi in the calm and relaxing atmosphere with a hot cup of tea just off the bustling shopping district on main street.

    Ehime Pref. Matsuyamashi Minatomachi 3-7-2
    This long-standing store in the heart of Matsuyama, Shikoku's largest city, offers Nabeyaki-Udon (hot-pot udon noodle soup), a local soul food. They use small dried sardines from nearby Iyo-Nada Strait and top-class kombu kelp from Rishiri, Hokkaido, to make the carefully guarded flavor of their secret broth which has remained the same ever since their opening in 1949. Their carefully made noodles are permeated with the flavor of their broth before being added to the broth in another pot where the domestically sourced meat is stewed, resulting in an exquisite flavor. Their menu has just two options, the Nabeyaki-Udon served in an aluminum pot, and Inari-zushi (a pouch of fried tofu stuffed with sushi rice). Despite this they've had endless customers ever since they opened. This popular shop is beloved by the locals.

    Their speciality is nabeyaki and this is basically the only thing on the menu except this rice ball sushi covered in tofu. Nabeyaki is reasonably priced at 550yen a bowl and you pay when food...

    This long-standing western-style confectioner is an Imabari landmark. First opened in 1903 they've continued to offer the same flavor over four generations. One of their hallmarks is that summer classic, shaved ice. The making of the shaved ice is overseen by the shop's patissier owner and after being shaken and whipped it stands out for its smooth melt-in-your-mouth texture. They offer 30 different flavors including their Milkshake with the classic sweetness and Strawberry-Milk with the luxurious taste of strawberries. During the winter months they open as a coffee shop and mainly sell cakes.

    Ehime Pref. Saijoushi Higashimachi 225-2
    A long-standing Japanese confectioner that first opened in 1867. The origins of yubeshi, a sweet yuzu-citrus flavored steamed dumpling, is said to date back to the Ashikaga-period where it was a preserved food for warriors and high-class family celebrations. The shop first began when they made maru-yubeshi by hollowing a yuzu citrus and filling it with a mix of sugar, miso, rice flour and mochi flour before steaming it then presenting it to the then lord of the Saijo region, Matsudaira Sakyo. Along with their maru-yubeshi, which takes two to three months to make, they also offer other products such as a bite-size yubeshi baked covered in natural bamboo, and a yuneri made from boiling yuzu-citrus skins with sugar and soy sauce.

    "This long-established Italian restaurant is located right in front of Iyo-Komatsu Station on the JR Yosan Line. It always tries to serve dishes that utilize the ingredients materials, such as vegetables sent directly from local trading farmers. Their ""Ehime Saijo Neapolitan,"" which is a spaghetti dish made with a tomato sauce using Pom juice of Ehime as a secret flavor, is a recommended menu item that combines freshness and nostalgia. The specialty ""Toriten"" (chicken tempura) is an appetizing dish with a garlic flavor that is crispy, juicy and suitable for both rice and sake. Their sweets such as their cool coconut-flavored chiffon cake are also popular."
