In Japan, soba noodles (そば) are a type of thin noodle made primarily from buckwheat flour. Soba has been a staple in Japanese cuisine for centuries and is commonly enjoyed both hot and cold.

The buckwheat flour used in making soba noodles gives them a unique flavor and texture. Soba noodles have a slightly nutty taste and a firmer texture compared to other types of noodles. They are often praised for their nutritional value, as buckwheat is a good source of fiber, protein, and various minerals.

Soba noodles can be prepared in different ways. When served hot, they are typically used in soups such as 'kake soba,' where the noodles are served in a hot soy-based broth and topped with scallions, tempura, or other ingredients. Another popular hot soba dish is 'tempura soba,' which includes crispy tempura alongside the noodles and broth.

Cold soba, known as 'zaru soba' or 'mori soba,' is served chilled on a bamboo tray with a dipping sauce called 'tsuyu.' The noodles are usually accompanied by garnishes like sliced green onions, wasabi, and grated daikon radish. It's common to dip the noodles into the sauce before eating them.
