(Why add chili oil to soba?)
Akihabara Branch

A popular restaurant that provides soba in a style different from regular soba.


This soba restaurant has an eccentric name, "Naze-Soba-ni-Rayu-wo-Irerunoka (Why add chili oil to soba?)" Usually soba is eaten with a light broth, but at this restaurant, copious amounts of chili oil is added as well for a taste that is almost completely different from other restaurants.
You can find items such as shrimp tempura soba and grated mountain yam soba. The noodles have a good chew and are topped with plenty of sliced nori seaweed.
No matter if you choose a small, medium or a large portion of noodles, the price is the same. Also, the counter is lined with raw eggs and you can have as many as you want, free of charge which is very customer friendly.
Enjoying the leftover soup broth with soba cooking water and a pinch of fish powder is recommended.


  • This is a new type of spicy soba made with ingredients such as chili oil.
  • Eggs are provided on the counter free of charge.
  • You choose a small, medium and large portion of soba noodles at the same price.
  • The yellow store sign is striking and has a high impact.
