tempura

Kamakura Matsubara-an Keyaki

Tucked away on the 4th floor (I think) in Harajuku, we found an amazing soba restaurant.  After having walked around a lot that day we were up for a decent feed and came across this restaurant on Trip Advisor.

We were seated overlooking the street below and were offered our menus. I ordered the tempura soba and my boyfriend ordered the cold soba with a duck broth.

This was my dish and I absolutely adored it. The tempura was lovely and light and very crunchy. Also barely oily at all! The soba was served in a rich broth. I loved this dish.  So simple but so tasty!

This was my boyfriends cold soba dish. I tried a bit of his duck broth and it was amazingly rich and full of flavour!

When we finished our meal we had a bit of broth left over and one of the waitresses came by to our table and handed us a teapot of boiling water.  My boyfriend and I just looked at each other and were a bit confused. What were we supposed to do with this and what was it for? Luckily the waitress came back and told us! As we had an extra small bowl each with nothing in it,  you were supposed to take a few spoonfuls of the broth,  put it in the bowl and then add the water to make a soup! Genius! Why didn’t we think of that?! Haha

All in all I really enjoyed this restaurant.  After a long day of walking all you want to do is sit down and have a nice bowl of delicious food!
