Hegi Soba

During our last visit to Tokyo, we want to a restaurant in Meguro specializing in hegi soba – it was around New Years and eating soba is a tradition.

Hegi soba is made from buckwheat and funori seaweed and is served in a special plate called a hegi as pictured below.

The restaurant was a typical izakaya so we had some finger food dishes as well as beer and sake to wash it all down.
