Sobagaki- kneaded buckwheat dough, served hot with soy sauce.

A soba place that I am totally addicted to. Everything is so delicious. Not only the soba noodles that is fantasic, but also the tempura, the duck, and many other toppings. For a soba place, the price is very reasonable considering the portion and the quality. Getting a small tendon(500yen) will make even a big eater like me leave with a happily stuffed belly. I tried almost everything in the lunch menu and all are so great that I don't mind going back for another round of the menu again, especially because you can choose either hot noodles with soup, or cold ones without soup, and I want to try both!
Lunch menu(J): 1, 2.

When I eat at home, I always get a pack of cold soba with grated yam from 7-11, add a pack of natto myself, and sometimes a hotspring egg too. Very healthy and filling! ^^;;

yeah I wish I could eat this everyday for lunch on work days too. Ume soba is a good idea, I'll try it next time I make soba at home.

Oh the buckwheat dough is not so mushy. But it does taste a little bland without soup or toppings. I prefer normal soba more!

Wow, many of these dishes appear fulfilling and yummy~~~ Would somebody please open a restaurant like this around where I live or work! The buckwheat dough dish is interesting, it doesn't taste "mushy"?
