Akihabara’s Must-Try: Tsukemen Delight at Hotate Biyori

Tokyo Style Noodle Hotate Biyori has quietly positioned itself as a hidden gem in the heart of Akihabara, captivating both locals and visitors since its grand opening in December 2022. The restaurant’s name, ‘Scallop Weather,’ adds an intriguing touch to its identity, hinting at the exceptional culinary experience that awaits patrons. What truly sets Hotate Biyori apart is its commitment to featuring Hokkaido-sourced scallops, rapidly becoming a culinary sensation.


Nestled in the lively tapestry of Akihabara, Tokyo Style Noodle Hotate Biyori not only stands as a testament to the city’s culinary diversity but also contributes a unique flavor profile to the vibrant food scene. The use of Hokkaido scallops brings a distinctive and delightful twist to their dishes, earning the restaurant considerable praise from numerous ramen enthusiasts.


Tsukemen, a cherished noodle dish in Japanese culture, takes center stage at Hotate Biyori. The name itself signifies a connection to the sea, featuring meticulously selected scallops from Hokkaido’s premier scallop village, Sarufutsu Village.

The “Scallop and Kombu-sui Tsukemen” comes in two varieties: salt and soy sauce, both of which have received commendable acclaim. Kombu is kelp, and sui is water; combined, they refer to a kelp-flavored broth. The noodles are a masterpiece crafted exclusively from 100% Hokkaido-produced ‘Haru yo Koi,’ ensuring a distinct and authentic flavor.


Hotate Biyori elevates its offerings with a lavish touch of Hokkaido-produced Rausu kelp-infused broth, using exclusive Hokkaido-produced kombu. The broth, enriched with anchovy, creates a symphony of flavors that dance on your palate, leaving you yearning for more.


Tsukemen is accompanied by a side of scallop carpaccio, bonito salt, wasabi, truffle oil, and dill. Kindly adhere to the instructions provided below.
