Handmade soba noodles made with stone-ground soba seeds and served chilled on a flat bamboo sieve.

Dip soba in the cool dipping sauce and add spring onions, wasabi and shichimi (7 spice chilli) to your taste.

The maitake mushrooms in the tempura are grown in the neiboring town of Kuni.

Please sprinkle with salt before eating. This tempura goes well with zaru soba and kake soba (buckwheat noodles).

Maitake mushroom tempura served on warm soba noodles.

First, please try the noodles as they are. Then please add spring onions or shichimi (7 spice chilli) to your taste.
