Sasuga Soba

Ginza
Soba

On a small, less traveled street in Ginza, the understated Michelin-starred Sasuga Soba prepares 100-percent-soba noodles that are rolled and cut by hand each day—notable because other shops add wheat to the dough as a shortcut. Order the yakimiso (grilled miso studded with buckwheat) and the sobagaki agedashi (fried buckwheat dough) to start. Finish with one of the 11 soba entrées. The cold goma soba, served with sesame dipping sauce, and the kamonan soba, a hot soup with duck, are standouts.
