Higashi-Jujo : From making to eating soba at Nojima

sponsored link

Watching soba chef making soba is fun !

I went to eat soba at Nojima
the other day.

Appearance, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

東十条の隠れ家的なおそばやさんです。行ってきました。

Not far from station, but it was hard for strangers to find the shop.

Not only eating, we could watch soba chef making soba (sobauchi) in our presence.

At first, buckwheat flour was grayish powder. He added water little by little and then mixed by his hands. He repeated it plenty of times.

Sobauchi1, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

なんとおそばを作るところから始まります!

Persons who don’t have bad nose can find the scent of soba, but I have so bad nose, so I couldn’t feel the scent of soba at all 🙁

Then, the color became thick.

Sobauchi2, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

そばの良い香りがするらしいです。鼻が悪いのでわかりません(`;ω;´)

Adding water again,

水を何度も足しては練り、足しては練り・・・。

He moved his hands so rapidly. It is not camera shaking 😛

Sobauchi7, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

手ブレではありませんよ。手さばきが早いのです!職人技!

Solid mass !

Sobauchi4, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

おおっ、固形になった!

Something cute. But it looks like Takamatsuzuka-kofun Tumulus…

Sobauchi5, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

なんかかわいい。古墳みたい(ノ∀`)

He then went to another room. He didn’t showed us stretching it with long rolling poles to sheet and cutting.

After a time he came again with finished soba !

Tamagoyaki (卵焼き). Tamagoyaki that eating at soba restaurant is more tasty than others.

おそば以外も美味しい。

Fresh vegetables (生野菜). Eating with salts or olive oils.

Fresh vegetables, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

塩やオリーブオイルで食べるド新鮮な野菜。凄い。ピカピカ。

Fresh soba.

Non-boiled soba, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

生のおそば。少し味見させてくれました。

Sobagaki (そばがき). I didn’t know such a sobagaki.

Sobagaki, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

こんな形のそばがき見たことない。

It was more sobagaki than the mass of fresh soba 😛
Especially good 🙂 I could feel the smell of soba with my bad nose.

Sobayu (そば湯). It is the broth left over after boiling soba.

Sobayu, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

蕎麦湯ですよ~。

Nozawana (野沢菜). This was the first time to see fresh nozawana.
The nozawana that I knew is only pickled nozawana that had already been cut into pieces. I found nozawana is vegetable, indeed.

Nozawana, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

漬物じゃない状態の生の野沢菜を見るのは初めて。食べるのももちろん初めて。

Pickled nozawana (野沢菜漬け).

Pickled nozawana, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

新鮮な野沢菜だから、漬物だってピカピカ。

Soba. Left darker color soba is Juwari soba (十割そば) that is consist entirely of buckwheat. Right soba is Ni-hachi soba (二八そば) being consists of two parts of wheat and eight of buckwheat.

Nihachi soba and Juwari soba, Nojima (Higashi Jujo)

二八そばと十割そばの食べ比べ。どっちもオイシイです。(違いがよくわからなかった^^;)

Juwari soba had a bitter taste a bit. But I liked the bitterness 🙂
But truthfully speaking, I couldn’t understand the difference between those two kinds of soba 😛
Tasted good, either.

Not only soba, I could eat a lot of vegetables. I had a nice time.
