Let's try hoto soup, it comes with the giant bowl full with variety of vegetable, udon and selected meat. Be careful, the portion per serving is quite large. You can also ask for english menu, it's really useful. Staffs are very nice and friendly.

Very nice traditional restaurant! I was surprised that they had an English menu. The food was delicious. It had been raining all week so I was definitely in for hot noodle soup. Highly recommended!
