Fuji Soba just had to be one of my favorite Japanese-style fastfood chains. Its traditional Japanese zen like exterior accompanied with tempting display of food samples attract not only local, but foreigners too. Even though there is no English in the menu, foreigners can order based on the food sample that appeals to them the most by jotting down the number and pay at the vending machine. Fast, simple and no communication required.
Fuji Soba menu offers soba or udon in hot soup with simplest toppings like wakame (seaweed) and negi (welsh onion) to onsen egg, inari skin and a varieties of fried tempura. They also serve soba or udon the cold way.
Apart from noodles, Fuji Soba also serve Japanese curry rice, Katsudon (fried pork cutlet on top of rice) and assorted mini dons. For those who cannot make up their mind, why not get the best of both worlds by ordering rice and noodle set. In this case, our Katsudon with Soba set for 720yen. The price for a single ala-carte ranges from 300yen to highest 490yen.
Other than getting the meal we have ordered, everything else is by ourselves; take own cup from the tray then water from the dispenser, putting the empty bowls back to upper tier for easier collection, and considerate enough to wipe the table clean for the next customer.
To me, Fuji Soba like any other Japanese-style fast food chains, is fast, cheap, delicious and serve as a good way to experience the local culture.
