After a nice meal at Maruya Honten we decided to stroll around the city and visit the famous Nagoya Castle then it's time for us get back to Nagoya station. While we are waiting for our train to Osaka, there is one small kishimen shop on the platform. 

Kishimen is one of the common food in Nagoya, it's a broad, flat, wheat noodles similar to udon. This dish is inexpensive served either hot in a fish based soup or cold accompanied by a dipping sauce.

There is no English sign or English menu provided in this small shop. You have to order using the vending machine located in front of the shop and there is no seats inside, just table counter to eat. This little shop are design for a quick, cheap stop for busy travellers and travelling locals.

We decided to give it a try and order randomly because we can't read Japanese. It was ready between seconds and it cost us 550yen. The dish was simple and to be honest I didn't expect much. The broth was rich, deep, earthy, no fishy smell. The noodles was thick but nice and smooth. It was not bad at all.

Overall, it was a unique experience starting with ordering food on a vending machines, eating standing on a small shop located in the train platform.
