Nagoya is famous for its miso food culture. The dominant type of miso used is 八丁味噌, or hachomiso, which is a miso with a sweet and nutty taste. This is used as a seasoning for all sorts of food, such as oden, and most famously on its pork cutlets as miso cutlets.

KISHIMEN

This is a broad and flat noodle with a broth that is not as soy sauce heavy as the Kanto style and not as light as the Kansai style. Its smooth and chewy texture makes it a tactile treat.
