日本蕎麦

Soba (Japanese traditional noodles)

1. A type of Japanese buckwheat noodles. One of the most popular kinds of Japanese cuisine, on a par with sushi and tempura. Healthy low-calorie food well-suited to the tastes of vegetarians and dieters.

2. Basic styles: mori-soba and zaru-soba are dipped in cold tsuyu (seasoned soy sauce) right before eating, and kake-soba is served in a bowl with hot tsuyu.

3. In Japan, making slurping sounds while eating soba is considered good manners.

4. Flavors of tsuyu differ greatly between eastern and western Japan.

5. Soba is served in many dining spots, both in fancy Japanese restaurants and at inexpensive soba stands.

Standing-up-eating soba stand

A type of soba shop without stools or chairs, where people on the go can eat. Mostly found around train stations and often patronized by extremely busy people.
