Fresh Hand-Made Soba at Maru

Maru is currently making fresh soba daily! 

Soba is a traditional Japanese noodle made with buckwheat flour rather than the usual white wheat flour used in ramen noodles.

Buckwheat is known for its health benefits such as lowering blood pressure and helping to metabolize body fats.

It’s also delicious! We hand make our soba daily to maintain freshness, so we only have limited quantities each day so ask your server.

Right now we are selling it 2 ways, Tempura Soba with a warm bonito and kombu soup with tempura shrimp, green onions and wakame seaweed; and Hiyashi-Ten with a cold bonito sauce with shrimp tempura, nori, wakame, and green onions
