€Data
No ordinary soba
shop, this is the
Tokyo venture of
restaurateur Koichi
Kobari, who ran the
highly acclaimed,
celebrity-patronized
Honmura-An restau-
rant in New York's
SoHo district before
returning to Japan.
We're pleased to see
that Kobari hasn't
lost his magic
touch. Of course the
shops noodles and
tempura items are
first-rate, but
you'll also find
original, creative
side dishes and
starters along with
a decent selection
of craft sake and
shochu.

It's fun to come
with a group and
order an array of
small dishes,
izakaya-style - the
seasonal menu ranges
from traditional
fare like yuba (tofu
skin) with sea ur-
chin and grilled fu
(wheat gluten) to
avocado salad. If
you're feeling ex-
travagant you can
call in advance to
order a special
tasting menu (from
Y5000 per person),
or you can just
stick with a plate
of soba or udon
noodles (Y800-2000);
the sesame dipping
sauce is especially
recommended. The
decor is modern and
very tasteful; the
attitude is friendly
and unpretentious.
English menus are
available.
