    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 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

    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

    For the low price, wonderful service and cooks, AMAZING udon, and cute menus... I would be a regular and fat if I lived anywhere near this place. I try not to do repeats but I'm ABSOLUTELY coming back

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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. =[]

    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.

    Amazing! Delicious veggie soba, authentic and flavorful for being vegan. One of the best noodle soups I've had in the city!

    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..

    you can't go wrong with the homemade silky tofu, kyona salad and cold kimchi soba. and if there's room for dessert, the coconut milk with berries

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Yo! Real talk, USA... Get the mera mera (cold). Also get the large (extra noodles) and thank me later. Top 15 dish in NYC! 🙌

    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.

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

    The Pork Kimchee Dip Soba is really good, also the Japanese Style Curry Pork Dip Soba. Excelent place! It is worth the 15 minute waiting!

    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.

    The pork kimchee soba was amazingly good - just spicy enough to warm you up in the winter. And love the atmosphere too. Go for it!

    Get the Warm Stamina Soba but save room for dessert! Mochi Ice Cream and Coconut Milk with Frozen Fruit are simple, refreshing and delicious.

    The cold soba says that it's a dipping sauce, but it was bukake style where the sauce is poured over the noodles. It was a little weird to have takuan as a topping on my noodles...

    Handmade tofu for appetizer, then stamina soba or chicken meatball dipping soba! Pair it with some junmai sake for dinner.

    Bacon mochi comes out more like dim sum turnip cake. Fried chicken is great! Save room for the soba soup at the end

    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.

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

    If you love thin noodles then you must try the stamina soba, which is cooked in a steaming pork broth.

    Larger space than the original location, but slightly different menu (no yuba here). New items include Mera Mera dip and Mexican soba.
