Bairan Shinkan/梅蘭新館, more precisely Bairan Shinkan Yakisoba is located in one of those side streets of China Town in Yokohama City.
It has 15 other “branches” Kanagawa Prefecture, Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Okayama, but this is the “Annex/Bekkan” of the original place.
The best time for a beginner to visit this place is definitely lunch time where you can benefit from very reasonable lunch sets which will give you a good idea of their cuisine!
