The buckwheat soba noodles at this 2020 Michelin-starred eatery are some of the best in Osaka — made by hand on the premises and cooked to order. For such freshness, you have to wait a little while, but thankfully a small dish of sushi is provided to tide you over.
The options are varied, including standard soba, as well as a whole grain style which is much darker in color and earthier in flavor. If you visit in the summer months, you can cool down with a dish of soba resting on top of sudachi — a kind of citrus fruit similar to lime. All come with aged dipping sauce on the side, and you can bulk up your meal even further with delicious tempura pieces on top.
Delicious handmade soba noodles should be on everyone’s itinerary when they visit Japan, so reserve yourself a seat at one of Sobakiri Masa’s 20 seats today.
