MINATOYA near Toranomon/Kamiyacho serves soba that no other soba shop does. Its a stand-up soba shop without any seats, but the quality of soba is unlike other stand-up soba shops and even the outside of the shop looks more like an art gallery.

And inside of Minatoya doesn't look like a soba shop as well.

Their main dish, which 90% of the customers order is TSUMETAI NIKU SOBA (Cold Buckwheat Noodle with Beef) for 850 yen. Both the soba tsuyu (dipping sauce) and soba are both cold.

minatoya tsuyu
Soba tsuyu has some Rahyu (Chili Oil) in it, which is usually used only for Chinese food.

On top of the cold soba is sweetly flavored shredded beef, sesame, green onions, and dried seaweed.

Just dip everything into the soba tsuyu . Not only the taste will be different, but there will be a crunchiness which you never experienced with other soba's.

It also comes with a raw egg and Tenkasu (Deep-Fried Tempura Batter) for the soba tsuyu, if you like.

minatoya egg
After finishing about half of the soba, add the raw egg and tenkasu into the soba tsuyu and mix it. Since the portions are huge, by adding egg and tenkasu it changes the taste of soba tsuyu, so you can enjoy it until the last single soba.

If you don't like beef there is ATATAKAI TORI SOBA (Hot Buckwheat Noodle with Chicken) for 850 yen.

The soba tsuyu is hot with chicken,

but the soba is cold.

There will be a line of people waiting, but the wait isn't that long since the soba comes out within a minute after you order and everyone leaves as soon as they finish eating. If you are looking for a quick lunch, filling and something different, I strongly recommend Minatoya. ALso, they will close when soba is sold out and on busy days thats usually before 6:30pm, so make sure you go before 6:30pm.
