Experience Details
Soba are served in a variety of places throughout Japan, from affordable hole-in-the-wall eateries to classy specialty restaurants. They can be found anywhere and are used to complement many different types of dishes. For example, soba noodles work really well as a foundation for stir-fry and salad, but are also fresh and delicious served chilled with dipping sauce. The noodles are made from buckwheat flour which has many health benefits, as buckwheat promotes heart health and is also rich in fiber and protein. Simple yet healthy and tasty, soba is a big part of the Japanese diet. This warm, friendly class is perfect for small groups of people who want to learn how to make healthy soba noodles. Held in a home cooking studio in a private residence, you’ll be offered a warm and comforting cup of green tea while you watch and learn how to make soba buckwheat noodles from scratch. It’s a healthy ingredient that you may have overlooked the importance of learning to make, but you’ll quickly discover that the process of making soba noodles is both fun and relaxing. Using traditional tools, you’ll be guided how to mix, roll, cut, and prepare soba and then eat them with delicious condiments for that authentic soba taste! This soba noodles cooking class offers the perfect setting for learning how to make your diet even healthier by allowing you to learn with a friendly, healthy cooking instructor in a small group.

Experience Location

Shin-Koenji is a pleasant residential area on the western side of Tokyo. Serviced by the Marunouchi Subway Line, Shin-Koenji is a kind of satellite neighborhood that benefits from having easy access to Koenji’s cool bars and vintage stores, but has its own low-key feel of quiet winding streets dotted with parks and beautiful Japanese homes. Families shop at the major supermarkets in the area, with the gorgeous food from the local Queen’s Isetan supermarket (owned by the department store giant, Isetan) matched by some local retailers and humble restaurants around Shin-Koenji Station.
