Hawaii Mom Blog: Shingen




July 26, 2022


For my friend's birthday, we met for lunch at Shingen, a traditional Japanese restaurant specializing in housemade soba. They make their soba out of buckwheat flour imported from Shintoku, Hokkaido.

Two of us ordered the Special Combo, which consists of udon or soba (hot or cold) + choice of mini-donburi (natto-don, ten-don, ahi-poke don, hiroo-don, gyu-don). We opted for the cold soba with ahi-poke don. We were given a generous serving of soba, with a small portion of ahi-poke. It was a perfect combination. 

My friend ordered the Mixed Soba, which consisted of a serving of soba topped with cucumber, nori, bonito, green onions, ginger, ground pork, and an egg. It came with a vinegar-based sauce that she mixed in with the soba. 

For dessert we tried the soba-andagi, which was made with buckwheat flour. It was OK, but I prefer the taste and texture of regular andagi.

Shingen is currently open daily for lunch from 11:30 - 2pm and for dinner from 5 - 8:30 pm. Reservations are accepted.
