เอกลักษณ์ชามเด่นของร้านคืออุด้งผัก ที่เสิร์ฟด้วยหม้อไฟขนาดยักษ์ และช้อนเท่าทัพพี ขนาดใหญ่แบบนี้ แต่ราคาไม่แพงลย อุด้งเหนียวนุ่ม ที่น่าจะเป็น signature ของร้านนี้ มาพร้อมผักและเห็ดจัดได้ว่าเป็นเมนูเอกลักษณ์ท้องถิ่นที่อุดมไปด้วยวัตถุดิบเพื่อสุขภาพ และนำซุปที่แสนอร่อย มาเที่ยวเมืองนี้ไม่ควรพลาดเมนูนี้...ที่หาไม่ได้ในเมืองอื่นๆ ในญี่ปุ่น
