Yabu Soba

2-10 Awajicho
Tokyo, Japan
TEL: 81-3-3251-0287

Set behind a leafy, courtyard-like entryway, Yabu Soba has an Old Tokyo feel, with its dark wooden beams, paper lanterns, and seating at the counter or at low-wooden tables with cushions for seats atop tatami-mat floors. Run by the same family for five generations, the restaurant has been in business since 1880 and the order-taker sings orders to the chef as part of a time-honored tradition. The menu includes Tokyo-style hot and cold soba (buckwheat) noodles, served with dipping broth and appetizers such as braised duck breast and steamed fish cakes. 

Insider Tip:

Waits can exceed an hour for lunch unless you arrive well before noon.
