Asian noodles in broth are my idea of comfort food, and on days when ramen feels too heavy and Pho feels too light, I like to head to Soba-ya. Their soba noodles are handmade on site, and the service, presentation, and menu feel straight out of Hokkaido. My order has always been the uni torero, avocado tempura, cold Kamo Seiro soba, and milk tofu for dessert. What can I say? I always go hungry.
