Soba (そば) is a type of thin Japanese noodles made from buckwheat flour.

In Japan, most thin noodles are called as soba, while thick noodles made from wheat are called udon

You can serve soba either chilled with a dipping sauce or in a hot broth as a noodle soup.

The tsuyu is a strong mixture of dashi, sweetened soy sauce and mirin.
