With over 200 years’ experience serving some of the best soba in Tokyo, Sarashina Horii is a very well known soba restaurant in the Roppongi area. You can choose from 4 different types of noodles, but we recommend the sarashina-soba. These noodles are white because the restaurant uses only the inner soba seed rather than the entire seed as with other establishments. Soups are dry or mild and there is a crispy selection of tempura to accompany the delicious soba noodles.
