    This place is excellent w zero frills. Small place, tasty and very well priced - perfect for a freezing afternoon lunch. Pork and Kimchee hot Soba 🍜 Dip was excellent!

    The hot soba in a pork and kimchi broth stands out, as does the more classic, cold Zaru. Yes, you’ll have room for dessert after a light dinner—we suggest the fresh tofu or sublime green-tea affogato. Read more

    One of the best Soba focused Japanese places in the city. Excellent vegetarian options but always go for something with the pork. The homemade tofu is very creamy, a matter of preference.

    The miso colelsaw is a must. As far as soba goes, mera mera (dip or warm) is #1, followed by tom yum dip. Try to save room for dessert, because the green tea affogato sundae is so good.

    For some seriously soothing soba noodles, head to Cocoron. I love the dipping noodles, though they take some work to eat. Don't miss the Stamina Soba and read about my visit on WinstonWanders below! Read more

    Great pick for a 'very New York' affordable delicious meal. Soba is the star, very vegetarian friendly. Be prepared to wait. Watch out! There are two very close to each other, so check which one!

    On warmer days, try the Bang Bang Ji - Cold Chicken Soba. It comes with a sweet and spicy sesame sauce that ties in the chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, and soba together.

    The curry with cold soba is great. A very flavorful option that keeps the noodles crisp. Sticky yam...well for order it if you're just trying it out cuz it's probably not what you think. =[]

    Stamina warm soba I tried was a bomb. I tend to not like the food that has citrus in it, but this it didn't bother me finishing the dish. It is the best soba I had in manhattan.

    Similar to a bim bim bap but with noodles instead of rice. Mera mera has a nice south asian spice taste (small portion of ground meat in tho) & noodles were fresh. Good options 4 vegetarians as wel.

    All the warm soba soups are delicious, especially if you add a poached egg. The mera mera special and the pork kimchi are standouts.

    Ramen is good but this is the place when you need much healthier and hearty Japanese noodle. Bonita flake bases soup is so rich and gentle to your stomach. Oroshi makes soup even more refreshing.

    Delicious authentic Japanese soba. Get the "nato" if you're feeling adventurous enough for Japanese fermented (gooey smelly) beans. Finish off with my favorite dessert, green tea adffogato

    Real soba I have had in years. Something similar to what I remember having in Japan. Real good vegetarian options as well. Staff is very friendly. Please note it’s cash only!

    Excellent buckwheat noodles, delicate and nuanced broths, and fresh custard-like tofu. Vegetarian and meaty broths are on hand; both are excellent.

    Cocoron offers “dipping soba,” where you dip cold noodles into a hot, concentrated broth. When you’re done, you get a pot of the water used for cooking, which, combined with the broth, makes a soup.

    The mera mera soba is delicious! Can't go wrong with the most popular item. The cucumber dish was nothing special even tho its promoted as a popular dish - I'd recommend skipping it.

    This new location has more items than the original one on Delancey, and more space! Be sure to check out to the add ons, love the Wakame (fresh seaweed) and grated Japanese yam

    If it's cold out, get some hot soba. If it's hot out, get some cold soba. Order the meatballs with sticky rice it's worth the wait!

    The curry pork soba is amazing, but they must cook it on the surface of the sun, it's that hot!

    Love all the dip sobas - you get hot water at the end of your meal to make the sauce into a soup. Delicious and soothing

    My favorites are the Mera Mera Dip Soba and the Stamina Soba. They cook their noodles perfectly and they don't come out soggy, even in the hot dishes.

    A variety of soba (buckwheat) noodles are served in various styles here. For first timers, the Stamino Soba or Dip Soba is a worthy first-order.

    A small and fairly intimate soba noodle shop and an authentic Tokyo back alley feel. The cold soba is surprisingly good. Try the Sansa.

    Loved the cold soba with salmon roe. They give you a bit of wasabi and it added the perfect amount of heat.

    Pork kimchee soba is ridiculously good. Get it. If you opt for dessert, steer clear of the green tea affogato. Misleadingly labeled as more than half the dessert was cornflakes..
  • Garett P.

    If you're still hungry after the noodles are gone, don't worry. They'll give you hot water to add to your dip and drink it like a soup.

    The soba tea is so on point. Don't forget to keep asking for more hot water - the soba is robust enough for multiple cups.
