At lunch

It's December, and there are just over two weeks left in this year.

The factory is running at full capacity during the busy season! !

For a change of pace, I mainly eat out for lunch.

I went to my usual soba restaurant, which is about a 5 minute walk from the head office building.

Pass through the parking lot and continue down the narrow alley until you see a green sign and a curtain.

The table says standing soba, but there are counter seats with chairs.

A rare restaurant where you can enjoy delicious handmade soba noodles in a homely atmosphere with a Showa era atmosphere.

I like soba and have eaten it while walking around, but this place is really delicious.

However, everyone's tastes are different, and it may take some time after ordering, so some customers only order once.

By the way, this restaurant has many regular customers, so I don't see many people rushing or complaining.


I think the first thing is the production background.

Looking at the kitchen from the counter seat

・Once an order is received, we begin cutting out the tempura ingredients and frying them.

- Set a timer to boil the soba by counting backwards when the tempura will be fried. Instead of boiling all at once, just make one serving.

・There's someone grating daikon radish next to you, etc. It feels like it's made to order.

It may seem inefficient, but it's very skillful, and above all, you can tell that each item is made with care.

If the soba noodles you make aren't good enough, the ticket machine will display that they're sold out... There are three female staff members who are all craftsmen!

Provided in the best possible condition. It's delicious...this is the reason I've been coming here for over 10 years...

As I was walking after eating, I came across the Kadoya headquarters building.

Now, it's my turn. Let's go back to making leather jackets one by one.
