Hokkaido Hyaku Soba: The Restaurant That Serves 100% Buckwheat Soba Noodles

24.December.2018 | FOOD

Hokkaido Hyaku Soba is a new restaurant that just opened in Asakusabashi, Tokyo that serves soba noodles that are made using 100% buckwheat flour.

The restaurant has opened in a joint agreement with Ikkyu Soba―a famous restaurant that opened in the city of Tomakomai, Hokkaido in 1975―to bring their delicious flavours to Tokyo.

 

Only the best soba noodles are used at the restaurant, all of which are made in Hokkaido. By having them delivered directly from their place of production it will ensure an authentic 100% buckwheat flavour.

The restaurant will also serve a dish that combines the noodles with scallops and other seafood ingredients caught in Hokkaido. It is served with shiodare salt-based sauce which is made from 41 ingredients including salt that is obtained from burning seaweed, salt-marinated rice malt and more. Made by experts to match perfectly with the meal, the restaurant describes the sauce as “addictive.”

The wasabi serve at the restaurant is from the brand Yamakawa Wasabi. It is delivered to the restaurant still in soil to preserve its freshness.

Another dish on the menu is the “Yuki Wasabi Saka Soba” which is sprinkled with this wasabi. It is 1.5 times more ‘spicy’ than regular wasabi so it is sure to add a kick to the meal which travels through your nose and leaves a mellow sweetness in your mouth.

 

Now you can try authentic 100% buckwheat soba from Hokkaido while you’re in Tokyo.
