[Soba Restaurant Jingoro]

Address: 9-1 Showa-cho, Kita-ku, Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture

Soba Restaurant Jingoro | Tabelog

●It's a traditional, small soba restaurant. Most customers order the oyakodon set. Not only is the soba delicious, but the oyakodon is also superb! The delicious broth and soft egg. The sansho pepper adds a nice kick to the dish, making it one of a kind. (30s/female/office worker)

[Date Soba] Address: 2-3-60 Omotemachi, Kita-ku, Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture

Date Soba | Tabelog

●Date Soba is a long-established ramen shop that has been loved by locals and tourists in Okayama for a long time. In addition to the ramen, the katsudon here is excellent. The way of eating the katsudon with demi-glace sauce by dropping a raw egg on it is unique to this shop. I recommend ordering the half and half set meal so you can enjoy both the ramen and the katsudon. (30s/male/civil servant)

[Shokudo Yamato] Address: 1-9-7 Omotemachi, Kita-ku, Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture

Yamato Restaurant | Official website

[Azuma Sushi]

Location: 2F Sunste Okayama, 1-1 Ekimotocho, Kita-ku, Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture

Azuma Sushi | Official website

●I recommend the Sawara-don. It's located at Sanste Okayama, so you can eat it right away as it's directly connected to Okayama Station, and it's also available as an ekiben on the Shinkansen. If you eat it in the restaurant, it's served in a beautiful dish. If there's one thing that Okayama residents love, it's got to be Sawara. It's a taste of spring. (30s/Male/Freelancer/Part-time worker)

[Men's Udon]

Address: 2-11-17 Tomitacho, Kita-ku, Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture

Otoko Udon | Tabelog

[Eight directions]

Address: 2-7-45 Saidaijikami, Higashi-ku, Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture

Happo | Tabelog

●This restaurant is famous for its Chinese noodles, but when it comes to rice bowls, the shrimp cutlet rice bowl is the best! You can choose between egg and tartar sauce, but the tartar sauce is the best. It's irresistible for mayonnaise lovers. If you order chicken soup with it, it's a very satisfying meal. (60s/male/office worker)


Address: 1-1 Ichiba, Minami-ku, Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture

Daimyoan|Official website

●I was taken here to celebrate my birthday. I love seafood, especially tuna. So I ordered the tuna bowl. There were food samples in front of the restaurant, and they looked really delicious. When the bowl arrived, I was very surprised! There was a lot more tuna than in the food samples, and it was thicker than anything I'd ever seen. It was very satisfying, and the tuna's flavor was very strong with every bite. I could see why there are so many customers. (Male, 20s, office worker)

[Standing Don Restaurant Tono]

Address: 2-25-45 Achi, Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture, Nijoya 103

Stand-up Donya Tono|Tabelog

●It is part of the Tono Bacon chain, and is located between Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter and Ebisu Manju. The smoked wild boar, bacon, and smoked salmon rice bowls are irresistible for fans of smoked food. The menu changes often, but the currently available braised pork rice bowl has 300g of meat on top, but is less than 1,000 yen, making it a delicious and great value dish! I don't want it to be well known, but I do want it to become more popular. That's the kind of restaurant it is. As the name suggests, it's small and you eat standing up, but that's also good! (40s/female/office worker)

[Petite Chat]

Address: 3234-1 Nitta, Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture

Petit Chat | Tabelog

Address: 2-2-43 Kojima Ajino, Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture

Mimatsu | Tabelog

●This is a restaurant I've been to many times. They fry the tempura right in front of me, and the wait for the tendon to be brought out is always exciting. The tendon topped with lots of freshly fried, crispy tempura is really tasty. I especially love the shiso leaf tempura. It's also good value for money, so I'm always very satisfied. (Female, 20s, Civil Servant)

[Tamashima Lunch Stand]

Address: 2-91-1 Shin-Kurashiki Station, Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture

Address: 1-38-1 Uno, Tamano City, Okayama Prefecture Tenmaya Happy Town Merca 1F

[Osaka Okonomiyaki Matchan]

Address: 471-1 Toyokunihara, Mimasaka City, Okayama Prefecture

Osaka Okonomiyaki Matchan|Instagram

●Even though it's called a bowl, it's not rice. It's "Dashioko," which can only be eaten at Osaka Okonomiyaki Matchan in the world. The bowl contains fluffy okonomiyaki, topped with dashi mixed with oil residue and lots of spring onions. People often ask me, "What does it look like anyway?" but it's one of a kind. (Male, 50s, self-employed)
