Monju - Best Soba in Ryogoku

When you are looking for a quick meal around Ryogoku station in a reasonable price, look for Monju where it serves an outstanding bowl of buckwheat noodles, so called Soba, for the price ranging from only 300 to 400 yen.  Though, the quality of the soba noodles that has a great chewy texture, which the locals usually call it "koshi", in Monju is incredibly high for such price.  On top of that, its lightly flavored soup, that somehow makes everyone feel relieved, is just marvelous right down to the last sip.   The space, on the other hand, is simple and sufficient but nothing fancy.  You can either eat while standing up or sit at a small table if there were any seats available.  So when you are in Ryogoku for an easy and quick delicious soba, make sure to meal at Monju.
