三吉屋 (Sankichiya)

Another local specialty of Niigata was this ‘clear ramen’.

Nevertheless, despite not being a huge ramen fan, I wanted to give it a go and found this […]

This place was highly recommended online when I was searching a good place to try Niigata’s specialty ‘hegi soba’. It’s a bonus that it’s located right by Niigata station as well, so I could easily drop by and have it for lunch. The hardest part was navigating the CoCoLo building that it is inside of […]

After walking a bit down the road of […]
