Zaru Soba Making Class

  • Knead dough

    Using a roller, spread the dough into a thin, rectangular sheet. Then use a sharp knife, preferably a sobakiri for soba specifically, to slice noodles out of the dough.

  • Cook soba noodles

    Boil your noodles for about just one minute, before draining and rinsing them under cool water.

Types Of Soba

  • Zaru Soba

    Zaru Soba

    One of the most recognizable and simplest forms of soba, zaru soba consists solely of cold soba noodles served alongside a chilled dipping sauce. Mori soba is identical to zaru soba except that only zaru soba has nori (dried seaweed) sprinkled atop.

  • Kake Soba

    Kake Soba

    Kake soba is a simple way to enjoy soba noodles in a hot dish. Noodles sit in a mild broth flavored with soy sauce, mirin, and dashi. Green onion and shichimi pepper are typical garnishes.

  • Kitsune Soba

    Kitsune Soba

    There are several theories as to how kitsune soba got its name – "kitsune" means "fox" in Japanese. One claims that foxes love the abuurage (deep-fried tofu) that always accompanies this type of kake soba dish. Confusingly, kitsune soba is called tanuki soba in Kansai, but tanuki soba carries a different meaning in Kanto – read on to learn more.

  • Tanuki Soba

    Tanuki Soba

    Tanuki soba, known as haikara soba in Kansai, features tenkasu as a topping. Tenkasu refers to small, crunchy pieces of deep-fried tempura (flour) batter. It is always served warm.

  • Tempura Soba

    Tempura Soba

    As its name suggests, tempura soba is characterized by its tempura toppings. Shrimp and vegetable tempura are popular choices, though some vendors use kakiage as a cheaper alternative. Kakiage is tempura made from varied small bits of seafood and veggies. This type of soba dish is served both hot and cold.

  • Tororo Soba

    Tororo Soba

    Also known as yamakake soba, tororo soba is distinguished by the slimy nagaimo potato puree that garnishes it. The glutinous and fresh texture of the grated nagaimo contrasts well with the salty, dashi-flavored broth. Another dish that can be eaten both hot and cold, it is often topped with egg and green onion.

  • Oroshi Soba

    Oroshi Soba

    Oroshi soba is a chilled and refreshing dish served with a cold sauce. It is always topped with grated daikon (daikon oroshi), as well as usually dried seaweed (nori) and green onion.
