May 5, Children’s day.
I went with my friends, a total of 8 people, to a cozy little restaurant.
It took about 20 minutes by bus from JR Ichikawa Station bus stop. The restaurant name is
“SOBA ISBA ISATO (SOBA ISBA いさと)”
Oroshi-soba course (2000 yen), sobagaki(1000 yen) and jyuwari soba(800 yen).
I like such a miso 😀
It seasoned with plenty of ginger.
There was a moist feeling and it tasted good. It had some pieces of duck meat in it.
It was springy and tasty, so I thought it contained grated yam. But the chef said “No. 100% buckwheat powder !”. Wow !!! I can’t believe !
Only buckwheat powder made such a springy texture. Amazing.
Putting squeezed juice of a lemon into soup. So novel way of eating soba!
And I hadn’t eaten such a fine soba ever.
I couldn’t find the smell of soba at all because of hay fever. How disappointing !
It felt smooth, and sure went down well. It tasted good, too.
Well, I wanted to eat it with hot soup 😛
I can’t tell which was better for me,,,,both were good. But, if I could have second helping of soba, I may have had nihachi-soba.
Then we moved to Kameido.
