    For a fix of wholesome soba - authentic buckwheat noodles - served in the local way head to Yubuan. Just a stone’s throw from Fukui Station, this soba shop doesn’t take any reservations as they serve only until their stock of soba for the day runs out. The restaurant uses a special buckwheat flour which is prepared with Fukui sake giving their noodles a subtle taste.
