SobaKoh

Just got back from dinner at SobaKoh with Mabel, Priscilla, and Crystal. This restaurant has been on Mabel's eat list since 2006 when she first saw their NYT review.

Mabel and I like the place. The dishes are all very nicely put together. We split chawan mushi and tempura. I got cold soba with salmon roe. It wasn't the dipping style. It was the pouring the sauce over the noodles style. I like the texture of their noodles. Mabel got cold soba with sea urchin. Priscilla got hot soba with duck. Crystal got a hot soba with soft shell crab. The crab came on the side. It was essentially tempura with a whole crab which was pretty awesome.

The only other place I've gone for soba is Soba-Ya, and I like this place better. The price was a bit more than I expected, and the portions might not be completely filling (though you can order extra noodles), but for the quality I think it's worth it.
