Taga-Soba 多賀―蕎麦 (Atami, Shizuoka)

I happen to have never had traditional soba the way this place serves it in the two years I’ve been living in Japan. I was able to go on the recommendation of an acquaintance. It was quite expensive but the quality of the meal was delicious. It’ll set you back about 15 to 20 dollars and you won’t but super full but it’s worth it. The tempura was fluffy and the soba was slightly firm. The sauce was also very good. It was my first time having soba this way but I am a fan. Mixing the onion and wasabi into the broth and dipping soba in it was delicious. The tea was different as well. After you finished eating all the noodles and toppings you went and pours a broth made from soba noodles into the broth and drinking it like soup. Yum. Definitely a fan. If you have the chance give it a shot.

It’s a pretty famous shop so expect them to usually have traffic. It’s been featured on Japanese national tv.


Taga-soba is a 5 minute walk from Izu-Taga station.
