This popular “hegi soba” noodle shop is just a 4 minutes’ walk from Niigata Station.
Niigata’s special hegi soba noodles are served cold on a square wooden plate called a “hegi”, arranged into bite-size bundles. They are made with a type of seaweed used to bind the buckwheat, preventing breakage and dryness and making them more pleasant to eat than regular soba noodles. It is certainly one of the most recommended local dishes to try in Niigata.

Besides hegi soba, customers at Suzakaya Soba can try a variety of other dishes such as “noppe” (a stew packed with local vegetables with a velvety texture from “satoimo” taro), fresh seafood, Niigata rice dishes, and of course, sake made in Niigata.

Their special “evening drink set” comes with sake, noppe stew, sashimi, and soba, all for only 2,200 yen. This is perfect for those who want to try all the tasty flavors of Niigata at once.
