Chuka Soba Ibuki

The Rasai stamp rally has begun, and it's time to hit the ground running. Two days after visiting first shop Mugen, I visited chuka soba shop Ibuki in Tenma. They had a variety of shoyu broths, and I went with the recommended one with black iriko, a kind of Japanese sardine.


The Bowl
This was a really simple and light shoyu. Nearly transparent, the flavor was just of a light salt, with the subtle touch of sardine. The noodles were medium and flat; easy to drink up in the clear broth. The menma had a bit more punch; it was thick and woody, and the chashu, though light and chewy, matched the theme of the bowl.


Would I Go Again?
It was solid but not my favorite shoyu in the area; I'm not sure I'll have time to make it again.


Should You Go?
This is a good place for people who are into those fishy, light, shoyu bowls.
