Tucked away in the East Village amongst several Japanese eateries is Soba Ya – home to fresh buckwheat soba made in-house.
This noodle house co-owned by Bon Yagi, ensured that fresh soba is made every day and the menu offers up to 12 kinds of hot or cold homemade soba and udon options.
Lunchtime gets real crowded where hungry patrons fill the place hungry for ho or cold bowls of fresh soba which is served in a red-black bento box with sides of vegetables, salad and so on.
Soba Ya is one an East Village’s staple and is a sold choice either for lunch or dinner.
Here is some of what we ate:
