Otafuku Noodle House review image
8.1

Otafuku Noodle House

Otafuku is a family-run Japanese restaurant that treats soba noodles like science. The three kinds of rare soba here vary in texture, size, and taste, but all are made in-house every day with flour imported from Japan. The all-white seiro is our favorite, but whatever you choose will be served cold on a bamboo plate with a tiny dish of garlic soy sauce for dipping on the side. It’s simple, fresh, and exactly what we want during a heat wave.
