Chinese soba restaurant – Hakuraku
Hakuraku is a chinese soba restaurant and souvenir shop in the Shirakawa-go’s main street.
A traditional refrigerator outside Hakuraku still be used.
Open the door and you could see many souvenir inside there. The restaurant is in the innermost part of the shop.
It’s a vintage-like restaurant.
The popular menu here is the Chinese Soba! You could see the snow-view while eating the Chinese soba here.
Size and flavour of the Chinese soba – Normal, lightly spicy, spicy and big size.
We have ordered the lightly spicy one’s (750 yen). The soup was perfect and the spicy taste was just matched. You couldn’t help to drink the soap even though you couldn’t eat spicy food!
There have many choice in the drink menu. Here you could taste the “amasake”, which is a sweet alcoholic drink made from fermented rice. And this time, let’s us try the original coffee dessert made by Hakuraku – “Red bean coffee”. It made by the red bean and hot coffee with vanilla ice cream.
The interior decoration and the tableware here could see the feelings of nostalgia for the past.
I could not imagine that the sweet taste of red bean is so match with the coffee.
Highly recommended that not only buying souvenir here, but also tasting the delicious foods while visiting Shirakawa-go village!
