Many foreigners complain that most restaurants are single dish oriented like sushi. Some Soba restaurant serves not only an artisan hand-made Soba but variety of traditional Japanese cuisine made from carefully selected pure ingredients. You can just order what you like to eat from variety of appetizers and entrees: Sashimi, Tofu, Tamagoyaki, Tempura, and fresh vegetable salad that all pair well with Sake (Rice wine). Dishes can be shared. There is no rules. Please don’t forget to order soba noodles.
Soba is a type of thin noodle made from buckwheat flour. Soba restaurant used to be known as a Sake-serving eatery. Visiting a soba restaurant in the early evening alone to eat soba as a topping and drink sake acquired the status of a popular snobbish hobby in Edo period.
Soba is served with dipping sauce and toppings. Pick a cluster of soba noodle, lift it up from the basket and dip less than half of it into the sauce. Don’t be afraid to make noise when slurping the noodle.
