Discover how you can enjoy handmade udon noodles with a family history going back to 1665.
German, Italian and Japanese yoshoku cuisine dominate the menu, with family favorites like croquettes, hamburg patties and ginger pork cutlets with soy infused sauce as well as coleslaw. This is wholesome and unpretentious eating, even though its most popular items are sausages, fried croquettes and craft beer. For dessert the chef takes the artistic route with tofu ice cream, which is nearly overwhelmed by the fig like jam sauce, very flavorsome with hints of raisins, honey, toffee and chutney.
The Akita Citizens Market is where locals come to find out the freshest fish, fruit and vegetables.
This family run eatery serves no nonsense Akita cuisine in a simple setting that is more like your aunt’s kitchen than a temple to fine dining. If you are hungry, iconic Akita dishes such as the Kiritanpo Set Meal is available at 1950 yen. It is an unique way to try Akita’s famous komachi rice on a stick. I tried another iconic local dish called Inaniwa Udon at 950 yen. Until the modern era in the late nineteenth century, Inaniwa Udon was quite rare, being consumed mainly by the Imperial Household and it can be difficult to buy in the markets at that time. Being flat and rectangular, it looks a bit like Vietnamese pho noodles.
It is amazing how closely food and folklore is intertwined in Akita culture. Experience it all at Akita Dining
