Handmade Soba & Grill Mahoroba
A soba (buckwheat noodle) restaurant located in the Matsuyama district in Uda City, which has been designated as one of the Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings. A 100-year-old photo studio was renovated and reopened in 2017.
Only carefully selected buckwheat flour by the owner is used without any binder, the handmade thinly sliced soba noodle fills your mouth with the rich flavor and mellow aroma, then slides down your throat. You can try the popular Kakuni Soba, which is slow-cooked Kakuni with thinly sliced soba, Zaru Soba (cold soba noodle with dipping sauce), or Tororo Soba (soba noodle with grated yam).
The former photo studio is one of the restaurant’s highlights. The magnificent beams, stairs, and luxurious courtyard create a photogenic setting. There are also soba-making tools and a millstone, which will certainly tempt you to take photos. There are also soba-making classes available, so be sure to look into them.
