Japan has always been one of the top travelling destinations voted by Singaporeans and it is of no surprise that one of the contributing factors is its food. Be it ramen, sushi or soba, you’ll get the most authentic Japanese taste in Japan.

However, not everyone can travel out of Singapore for this authentic Japanese cuisine and that’s what we’re here for! In this article, we’ll be introducing the 10 Best Restaurants for Soba in Singapore to satisfy your cravings. But first…

Do You Know What Soba Is?

Soba is a thin Japanese noodle made from buckwheat. The noodles are served either chilled with a dipping sauce or hot in a noodle soup. The variety of Nagano soba includes wheat flour. In Japan, soba noodles can be found in a variety of settings, from “fast food” places to expensive speciality restaurants.

Personally, I prefer it chilled, making it a unique noodle choice. It goes well with the variety of Japanese tempura, which is what my family likes to have it with. Haven’t eaten it before? Check out this article and try it out yourself!

one of their bestsellers!! enjoyed the firm springy texture of their soba. it was good as I had expected, knowing they specialise in soba, but their tempura was a surprising standout. ticked all the boxes of good tempura — thinly battered, crispy and light without any greasy aftertaste.”

– Review from Cheralynn Wong

As its name suggests, one would expect high-quality soba served when you’re at Tokyo Soba and glad to say that their reviews suggest likewise! A go-to if you would like to try some authentic soba both in chilled or hot versions!

Missing the Hokkaido taste? Then you’re in the right place! Amazing Hokkaido brings ingredients fresh from Hokkaido, giving you the best dining experience. With their selected gourmet partners and the fresh ingredients, you already know the quality of food served there.

Reviews complimented the scenery at Robertson Quay, which is accompanied by the great ambience, chill vibes and of course, delicious Japanese cuisine. However, it’s slightly on the pricier side so do check your wallets before coming!

Ichiban Boshi has always been my go-to spot for Japanese cuisine and other than the quality sashimi cuts that they provide, their soba dishes have my heart for as long as I can remember.

Their soba is usually served with fried tempura and the sauce that comes with the cold soba complements their chewy noodles well. Their outlet at Causeway Point is the nearest to where I’m living so I’ve always frequented that outlet but Ichiban has many locations over Singapore and you will find one near your house!
