Recommended lunch around Arai Ferry Terminal

投稿日:2023-08-27 更新日:

Let’s have lunch before boarding the ferry in Oarai!

We will introduce lunch that looks good after taking a walk around the Oarai ferry terminal.

For a meal before boarding.

Kanefuku Mentai Park Oarai

Mentai Park in Kanefuku, famous for mentaiko.

You can purchase mentaiko, but you can also eat in or take out the mentaiko bowl at the food court.

Quite crowded on weekends.

You’re lucky if it’s empty.

Seafood restaurant Wakyu

It’s located on the opposite side of the road from Mentai Park.

A restaurant that serves seafood is easily accessible because it has a large parking lot.

It seems to be convenient when using a car.

 Soba noodle restaurant Daishin

The soba restaurant where we ate lunch this time.

It is an old-fashioned local famous store called Daishin.

Just as we were wondering if we should go in, a person who appeared to be a local came out of the store and exclaimed, “It’s delicious!” as he was leaving, so we decided to go in.

The result was very correct.

I ordered the Kamo Nanban Soba, and the soba noodles went well with the dark soup that exuded the flavor of the duck and maitake mushrooms.
