Let me introduce you to my new favorite ramen!. I visited their tiny restaurant in Ginza and fell immediately in love. Abura soba’s noodles are different. They might call themselves soba but the noodles are actually from the ramen family and instead of the usual hot broth, they come lathered with different oils and sauces.


The restaurant only has a 10 seat bar counter so there is usually a line outside but the waiting time is very short. You order your noodles from the machine at the entrance. Of course everything is encrypted in kanji so ask for an english menu, it is available. You have a choice of salty or spicy miso. I love the spicy miso and I add an extra half boiled egg to it. I then mix the noodles until they look like this…

Abura soba has a few outlets but the one in Ginza is 2 streets behind the Matsuzakaya department store and this is how the facade of the restaurant looks like.


A bowl of noodle with extra egg is about 1000 yen. I am so in loveeeeee….

    Hi Bianca, do you know the exact address of this mouth watering Abura Soba? Or even the name of the street or building would help a lot too 🙂 been googling the location with unhappy results huhuhu

    Trying to squeeze this in for a Ginza lunch on my next Japan trip (hopefully)
