Soba Nippon

Restaurants, Japanese Midtown West
Among Japan's least lauded cuisine is soba, buckwheat noodles the color of cardboard that are often served cold. But in truth, the noodles are delicious hot or cold, and its variations are many. Little ones will love zaru soba in summer, seaweed-topped cold noodles one dips in a soy-based sauce, and in winter paired with the likes of shrimp tempura, breaded pork or, yummiest of all, tororo (grated Japanese mountain yam)—you have to try it to understand why.
