Kishigami Soba Restaurant is located in one of the most beautiful locales in Shizuoka City just before the tunnel leading to Fujieda City.
Utsunoya alone is worth regular visits with its Edo Era inns and many hidden treasures in the middle of green mountains!

The trip is made the more valuable for the true Japanese gastronomy offered at Kishigami, including some top local sake chosen by Kayoko Kishigami, the eldest daughter who is also a sake sommelier!

SN3O0390

Suginishiki Junmai made by Sugii Brewery in Fujieda City with Shizuoka-grown Homarefuji sake rice!

SN3O0391

One very special treat is this homemade ham prepared very year by Kayoko’s father!

SN3O0392

It is made with whole legs of pigs raised in Mikkabi, Western Shizuoka Prefecture which are salted, cured and smoked for a whole month to obtain a succulent ham which is neither raw or cooked! A discovery!

SN3O0388

As for the soba it is just an embarrassment of choices.
Mind you that enables to order something different every time!

SN3O0394

This time I had “oroshi soba/おろし蕎麦”!

SN3O0395

It can be ordered hot or cold.
This time I opted for the cold version what with the heat of the day!
Such a soba dish differs from restaurant to restaurant, and I love Kishigami’s because it is lighter, tastier and healthier!

SN3O0396

The “oroshi”, or deep-fried tempura batter, that you mix with your soba as you like for a delicate crunchy touch!

SN3O0397

It is moreover served with freshly grated daikon and sprouts for extra zip!

SN3O0398

“Soba Yuu/water-soup in which the soba were boiled” that you add to the leftover soup.
People afflicted with high blood pressure should drink gallons of it! Serious!

SN3O0400

Elegant earthenware is an added pleasure!

See you there next month for a different dish!
