SARASHINA HORII (Azabu-Juban)

I've already wrote about Big 3 Names or Families of Tokyo soba restaurants (in Japanese, Edo Soba Gosanke). Once again the big 3 are SARASHINA, SUNABA, and YABU. I've introduced one of the shops of Yabu (Kanda Yabusoba) already. And now I would like to introduce my favorite type of soba, Sarashina and there are many shops which use the name, but one of the most famous shop is SARASHINA HORII at Azabu-Juban.


更科堀井 つゆ、薬味
Sarashina Horii actually opened in 1789, but closed once from World War II and it took them nearly 40 years to reopen in 1984.

The biggest difference compared to Yabu or Sunaba is that they invented SARASHINA SOBA, a white soba for 870 yen.  Soba is made out of buckwheat and a grinder is used to make soba flower. Most of the buckwheat is colored in gray, but the very center is white. And this white part is used to create Sarashina soba. The aroma of buckwheat is much less than normal soba, but the taste is so simple and clear. If you were going to only have one item here, Sarashina is it.

You can also have Sarashina soba with Tempura like the above which is KOEBITEN SARASHINA (Cold sarashina soba with small shrimp tempura).

They also have normal soba, MORI for 770 yen and

thick soba called FUTOUCHI SOBA for 870 yen. (The above picture is KAMOSEIRO FUTOUCHI SOBA, which is cold thick soba with warm soba soup & slices of grilled duck breast)

Their hot soup soba's are good too like TEMPURA SOBA (Prawn tempura soba) for 1,690 yen,

KAKIAGE SOBA, (Small shrimp & mitsuba tempura soba) for 1,690 yen,

and my favorite KAMO NANBAN (Grilled duck breast soba) for 1,750 yen,


更科堀井 たたみイワシ
Before ordering soba, you want to start out with ordering a bottle of sake and some appetizers like TATAMI IWASHI (Dried bar of small sardine) for 550 yen,


更科堀井 ざる豆腐
ZARU TOFU for 630 yen,


更科堀井 豚の返し煮
BUTA-KAESHIN (Soft pork seasoned with sweet soy sauce) for 700 yen,


更科堀井 更科堀井 鳥焼
TORIYAKI (Chicken teriyaki) for 680 yen,


更科堀井 板わさ

更科堀井 鴨焼き
KAMOYAKI (Silces of duck breast grilled on a iron plate) for 680 yen,


更科堀井 玉子焼き
TAMAGOYAKI (Sweet egg omelet) for 680 yen,

更科堀井 inside
There are actually three soba restaurants in Azabu-Juban with the name Sarashina and all three of them are equally famous. All the owners are different, but 200 years ago it was one shop. They all provide Sarashina Soba, but they are a little different from each other. But if you are having plain cold Sarashina soba, Sarashina Horii is the place to go. And if you get lost trying to find Sarashina Horii and want to ask someone where it is, make sure you tell them Sarashina Horii, the full name not Sarashina since the person might tell you how to get to the other Sarashina named soba restaurants.
