Meet our newest culinary obsession: soba noodles. We order up these lovely buckwheat flour noodz every chance we get, whether they’re chilled and tossed in chili dressing or swimming in hot + aromatic broths. But instead of heading to our favorite Japanese restaurant to get our soba fix, we’re thinking we should start making our own at home. We’re imagining bok choy soba noodle bowls, lemongrass soba soup and maybe even some soba with cumin pork. Let’s start sampling, shall we?
