Gastroliterary 44: Japanese @ Shimbashi Soba


Shimbashi Soba at Paragon can be guaranteed to serve fresh handmade soba. A live Japanese chef can be seen kneading the dough in the display window. It is quite a pity that this restaurant does not grow their own soba.

The soba served is interesting because it is accompanied by the fried batter left behind while frying tempura. Very interestingly, they make a good combination; very different from the usual spring onions. The thinly sliced, smooth noodles comes a subtle sweetness of the soba wheat.

A set dinner cost approximately $20. Other than the wonderful soba, nothing else could possibly leave an impression.
