Yabu (Culver City)

By in 13: Culver City


Found this hard to spot authentic Japanese Soba/Udon restaurant nearby where I worked. The place looked so tiny and blank outside that it took me awhile to spot it while driving. I never liked soba for its buckwheat taste and wheaty texture, though it might be because I never had truly good soba before.


Inside felt like Japan, packed with Japanese ojisans and salaryman. The left picture was my collegue’s Soba set. I got the Mizore, soba with Ikura and radish and seaweed. Pretty good! I still wasn’t too crazy about craving soba. I’d try their udon next time. I’m so grateful there’re authentic Japanese noodle place so closed by! *__* There’s a sushi bar inside as well.

    The colour of the soba looks right~~~The interior is too modern to be a real salaryman/ojisan-oriented soba place though, haha.

    the soba seems flat, so i guess it’s authentic. if they have shin soba, try that too. it might taste better for you. i haven’t had good soba yet either. the better ones are my friends omiyage from her trip home.

    Ha maybe there’re plenty of real ojisan place in Torrance, which is where most of them work (lots of Japanese corp. there). But out here in west LA, they have no choice but fancy one like this ^^;;;
