Koedo Ohana

This restaurant is famous for its egg dishes. Oyakodon is the most popular dish, and they use the finest ingredients for the eggs, broth, and chicken, resulting in an exquisite tender oyakodon. The birds are made from heirloom chickens, which are concentrated in deliciousness. There are also some strong people who eat a sandwich with a thickly baked egg before eating this superb oyako-don. We recommend this restaurant for an egg-filled meal.

The egg sandwiches are also excellent!

The egg sandwiches are also popular for their excellent taste and fluffy, thickly baked egg omelet. You can also enjoy egg dishes to your heart's content, such as the soboro oyako donburi and tamago-yaki set menus. Takeout is also available, so if you can't finish your sandwich, we recommend taking it home. Of course, it tastes great even after a long time.
Koedo Ohana has become a place where egg lovers can be happy.

This is a restaurant where you can eat jelly fries, a representative of Gyoda City's B-class gourmet. The jelly is not deep-fried, but rather is like a croquette without the batter. The fries are deep-fried upon order, so they are always freshly made. It is served with sauce or soy sauce. The restaurant is also famous for its yakisoba (fried noodles), and the reason why we recommend it is that you can eat a lot of B-class gourmet foods of jelly fries and yakisoba.

It is a perfect place to stop by on a drive because you can casually go in, buy something, and leave.
The secret of their popularity is that they are reasonably priced, easy to get into, and freshly made. The croquettes are filled with okara (bean curd) and are priced at 70 yen each.

This is a restaurant where you can eat a local dish, "ochirikomi udon ". The udon noodles are made with handmade rice noodles made with local products and are characterized by their thickness. They come out in a soy sauce flavored broth that is simmered with vegetables so that the soup can be enjoyed to the end. The soup is light yet rich, and the thick udon noodles can be eaten smoothly, making them delicious even in summer.

Zaru udon noodles are also available!

If you want to eat freshly made udon, I recommend the colander udon. Tempura and other items are also available, and the good thing about udon restaurants is that they are served quickly when you are hungry.
Since Nagatoro is a town with clean water, the udon noodles are also well known for their delicious taste. If you come to Nagatoro for sightseeing, it is recommended to have lunch at this restaurant.

This is the birthplace of Saitama's gourmet pork miso donburi. Pork marinated in miso and grilled over charcoal is served on top of a bowl of rice. The sweet pork and savory flavor of this delicious bowl of rice will make you gobble it up. The thick pork is tender, yet rich, making it a very popular and satisfying dish.
It is a popular restaurant with a constant line, so we recommend staggering the time of day when you go.

You can choose the amount of pork.

A special serving is also available for those who want more pork.
Even a regular bowl contains enough to fill the lid of the bowl, but if you want more, try the extra large bowl. The system is based on buying a meal ticket, and toppings such as a raw egg are available, and the egg and pork mix together to create a milder flavor.

Asami Reizo Kanazaki Main Store

This is a famous shaved ice shop in Chichibu. The shaved ice at this long-established store, which has been in business for 130 years, is so popular that customers are said to wait up to three hours for their shaved ice at peak times. The natural ice is frozen slowly so that the shaved ice is soft and fluffy, creating a delicious shaved ice that cannot be imitated anywhere else. The syrup is made by boiling down wasanbon, which is also uniquely delicious.

Melt-in-your-mouth flavor

The shaved ice itself is delicious, but choosing the syrup is another part of the fun. In addition to the regular menu, there are also various syrups that change daily, such as Chichibu Nishiki Daiginjo Amazake shaved ice, so you can enjoy it as a treat of the day.
Another high point of the store is that you can choose one of the bean paste options along with syrup. The store is also characterized by its retro Showa-era atmosphere. If you go sightseeing in Nagatoro, you should definitely try it.

Misopotato Honpo

This is the only restaurant specializing in Chichibu's specialty, Misopotato. Miso Potato is both a local delicacy and a B gourmet dish, and is the soul food of Chichibu residents. It is made by tempura-rolling potatoes, deep-frying them, and dipping them in a sweet miso sauce. It is just that, but it is a strange and addictive food.
It has become a staple dish, eaten as a snack, as a side dish for lunch, or served for dinner; it has even won a B-class gourmet competition, and has now become a nationally famous food with many fans across the country.

Even frozen foods!

It is a surprisingly time-consuming dish, involving blanching potatoes, frying them in oil, and making miso sauce, so frozen food is convenient when you just want a quick meal.
Of course, it is best to go to the real place to eat it, but it is also convenient to eat it anytime. There are many B-class gourmet foods in Chichibu, so please try them. Misopotato is sold pre-cooked at Super Belk in Saitama.
