Soba Restaurant: Kuromugi in Shizuoka City!

Inaka soba, seiro soba, sarashina soba!

Service: Friendly
Equipment: Old but clean
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: 100% soba noodles (ju-wari soba). Traditional Japanese Soba Restaurant.

Looking around Town and Prefecture for new soba restaurants to visit is always a pleasure, the more for it that their cuisine is not only delicious but also very healthy!

Kuromugi/くろ麦 is not that easy to find, so please consult the map at the end of this article!

Naturally all soba noodles are made on site and are ju-wari/100% buckwheat flour noodles!

Keep your eyes open for some interesting decorations to discover as you enter the establishment!

Great scene of the past!

Not Halloween yet!

Cute and traditional ware!

They serve some great Shizuoka sake, and like any soba restaurant worth its salt, a beautiful miso yaki/white miso paste mixed with soba seeds and yuzu juice spread on a wooden spoon before being grilled!

They do have many varieties of soba, so the two of us tried to order as many as possible!
I asked for the Three-Color Soba Set/三色蕎麦!

Inaka soba/田舎蕎麦/”Country” soba, very thick whole grain soba!

Seirosoba/せいろ蕎麦/Traditional whole grain soba!

Sarashina soba/さらしな蕎麦/Polished grain soba served with the grated daikon, wasabi and chopped leeks/scallions with the tsuyu/soup to dip them in!

The Missus ordered the yuzu soba and tempura set!

Yuzu soba/柚子蕎麦! A true delicacy to please all priorities!

Beautiful tempura including ebi/海老/prawns and kisu/キス,鱚,鼠頭魚/Sillago!

Definitely deserves a second long visit!
