Japanese Soba Noodles
Soba noodles (そば)
Japanese soba is a type of noodle made from buckwheat flour, water, and, occasionally, a little amount of whole wheat flour to prevent the noodles from wilting. Hand-making soba is a remarkably difficult procedure that craftspeople spend years learning. Although the tastiest soba is produced in small batches and sold fresh, In Japan you can easily find soba for your weekday meals at the grocery store.
