Hand made Soba & spicy sour noodles

soba
Moving into a new neighborhood means excuses to eat out since we want to check out what is available. Our new neighborhood is relatively quiet compared to our last location but there are a few places that have really high ratings at Tabelog. The first place we checked out was this relatively old and traditional shop that made hand made soba.

Vegetable tempura soba set, a bit pricey at 1900JPY but I have to admit that hand made soba texture is really different.

It was only after moving to Tokyo that I know that you can mix the dipping broth for the soba with the hot soba water that was used to cook your soba. Fresh buckwheat smell is simply heavenly.

spicy sour noodles
I said that we were a little crazy to eat hot and spicy noodles in the summer heat.

Surprisingly that the Dan Dan noodles was much tastier, the sesame broth was really rich.

The hot and spicy noodles was a little too dry in my opinion and too sweet for my spicy tastebuds.
