TOKYO: Kanda Yabu Soba - THEN and NOW


Kanda Yabu Soba

Yabu Soba opened its doors for business in 1880.

“Soba”, or buckwheat noodles, tempura and sushi, are three popular Japanese dishes that date back to the Edo Period. Soba noodles are a favorite anytime all over Japan, but are also traditionally enjoyed on certain special occasions such as New Years or when someone moves, and are said to bring good fortune.
Our soba noodles are served “seiro”, style?that is, firm noodles made from ten parts buckwheat flour to one part wheat flour, which are then dipped in a tasty broth and enjoyed. We also offer Tendane?soba noodles in tsuyu soup with crispy deep-fried shrimp on the side?and Tempura soba?noodles in broth with deep-fried shrimp on top.

In February 2013, a fire destroyed the traditional, low Japanese abode that housed this long-running soba shop, leading to a lengthy break in operations and much hand-wringing among Tokyo's buckwheat noodle enthusiasts.

Fortunately enough, Yabu Soba rose from the ashes in October 2014 and is now back to serving both excellent soba and a wide variety of tasty side dishes. The new building can't match the charm of its predecessor, but is very convenient with both counter and table seats, in addition to the large dining rooms upstairs.
