    Slurp that JP curry soba with pork. The darker meat pairs excellently with the thin but well-flavored curry 😛

    I had the dipping soba with duck breast and chicken meatball. The broth was sooo flavourful and came with scallions and yuzu zest which made it 👌🏻

    If you can handle spicy, the Tom Yum Dip Soba is where it's at! I tried the silk tofu but honestly wasn't a big fan of cold tofu- not sure what all the hype is about.

    It's a small Japanese restaurant with a lot of healthy options! For someone who is not tried soba noodles before go for warm soba. Warm Japanese style soba with chicken and Mochi ice cream were yumm!
