There was a legendary soba restaurant at Toranomon called Minatoya as knows as the soba restaurant with the longest queue in Japan, now a days chili oil soba is getting more and more popular, but the Minatoya might be the founder of this style soba.

This is the only menu at this restaurant and the name of “Mercedes-AMG GT” is Sport style Mercedes car model, like the car concept, the soba is also very modern style.

At first the noodle, typically the soba color is dark brown, but it is light yellow like ramen noodle here. But slightly feels the soba flavor. Also the noodle is very chewy.

For the dip soup, the base of soup is sweet soy source and chili oil like typical chili oil soba, but a lot of Sansho; a Japanese pepper, on the soup with many leak and boiled pork, the taste is feels like Chinese food.

You can use the egg later to change the taste, it would become more sweet and mild with the egg.

After finished, Soba powder and hot water is on the corner, you can mix them and pour it into the dip soup to taste them.
