Everything about this diminutive spot is transporting, from the crammed-corner-of -Tokyo feel to the super-authentic, and delicious, food. Soba noodles are the specialty, for slurping at a dark-wood L-shaped counter or perched at one of three tiny tables. To start there’s sublime housemade tofu, creamy and cold in a simple soy-based sauce with ribbons of seaweed and bonito. The cartoon-bedecked menu endearingly touts the nutritional properties of each soba preparation, but ignore these and go with your gut. Most varieties come hot or cold, for dipping or as a complete soup. Choose the soup route unless you enjoy a challenge, but if you do, you might opt for the yuba housemade tofu skin that you cook yourself in broth with noodles you’ve also cooked. On the side you can add delicate ceramic plates of bright-orange kimchee or vividly purple coleslaw, both of which are worth grabbing by the chopstickful with your noodles for added crunch. And if you’re still hungry at the end, there’s a sweet version of that killer tofu.
