Sobaya is an East Village restaurant where you can enjoy fresh-made soba (buckwheat) noodles. The nihachi soba (literally two-to-eight noodles—i.e., eight parts buckwheat to two parts wheat flour) made with sarashina (white buckwheat) flour from Azumino in Nagano Prefecture are aromatic and go down smoothly. But we must not forget the many small plates made with fresh seasonal ingredients. Choose one of each from the small bowls, sashimi, broiled dishes, warm dishes and fried foods on the menu to give yourself the experience of a multiple-course dinner.
