Nishin soba at Honke Owariya | Kyoto, Japan 1

Honke Owariya has been in business since 1465. It was originally opened as a confection shop but over time started with more offerings. The nishin soba was delicious: the herring was sweet and tender from it's marinade and it rested in a bowl atop some realy nice soba and a light, slightly sweet broth. The fish cakes were nice too.
