Old-style soba, which is made from whole buckwheat with its skin unpeeled, hence the dark colour. I expected very rough texture, but it was actually quite smooth. Very nice! I realised too late that, instead of the normal tsuyu sauce I had, I should have gotten the radish sauce+soy sauce(with a 100yen extra), which is the best way to eat the soba apparently….must go back!
Second visit. Grilled Konjac – the sauce is slightly salty but nicely savoury. Soup soba with fried yam. The big croquette thing on top is all yam, nicely fried on the outside but the yam not seasoned or salted at all, and the soup is also very mild – I was very tempted to ask for soy sauce.
