While soba is traditionally buckwheat based, noodles often contain up to 20% wheat flour in order to increase stretch and keep the noodles stable over time. At Kyourakutei Soba, noodles are hand-made and hand-cut using 100% buckwheat sourced from the owner’s hometown. This results in a more flavorful, but fragile noodle, requiring that fresh batches be made every morning, as the soba will not stay formed if it is kept any longer. The difference was immediately apparent. More fragrant and nutty in flavor, the cold noodles required only a light dipping sauce. And while the soba takes center stage, the lightly fried tempura was a perfect accompaniment. . 📍Tokyo, Japan
