Yabaton Yabacho Honten

Miso katsu (pork cutlet) is one of Nagoya's most popular dishes. Yabaton is so famous for its miso pork cutlet that it is called "Yabaton.
The pork cutlet is made from high quality pork right in front of your eyes and served with a generous amount of miso sauce. The sweet miso sauce goes perfectly with the pork cutlet, making it easy to eat even a large piece of pork cutlet.
The crispy tonkatsu and the rich sauce are addictively delicious. The juicy tonkatsu and the miso sauce are exquisite.

Cutlets with regular sauce are also available.

For those who don't like miso sauce, there is also a regular sauce. You can have another serving of cabbage to refresh your palate, and the repetition of rich and light flavors makes it so delicious that you could eat it forever. The trademark of the restaurant is a pig wearing a wrap, and there are now branches not only in Nagoya, but also in Osaka and Tokyo. We recommend this restaurant for those who are tired of regular tonkatsu.

If you eat inside the restaurant, you can enjoy the freshly made temmusu with miso soup that goes perfectly with the tempura. The store at Kintetsu Nagoya Station specializes in take-out.

Delicious to take home with you!

Tenmusu that requires no side dish is excellent even if you take it home with you.
The flavor soaks into the rice, giving it a different taste than when it is freshly made. Although there is only tenmusu and miso soup on the menu, it is worth going just for the tenmusu because they have mastered the taste of tenmusu. Please try it when you come to Nagoya.

Yamamotoya Honten

Yamamotoya is a representative restaurant of Nagoya meshi miso nikkomi udon, and offers delicious miso nikkomi udon. There are a variety of menus to choose from, including seasonal specials, udon with Nagoya chicken, udon with shrimp tempura, and many more. You can enjoy the best harmony of miso, udon, and dashi broth in an earthenware pot.

Rich dashi broth!

The rich dashi broth is also known for its delicious taste. It is said that even when you are not feeling well, eating miso nikomi udon noodles will cheer you up. Mixing an egg in the broth gives it a milder flavor, so we recommend mixing an egg in halfway through the meal. Stewed udon is perfect for winter, but surprisingly, eating it in summer is also recommended to recharge your energy.
