TOKYO.

Honmura-An.

By Katie Jacobs

Honmura-An is the highly regarded Tokyo venture of restaurateur Koichi Kobari and definitely isn’t your run-of-the-mill soba noodle bar.

7-14-18 Roppongi, Minato-ku
Roppngi

This soba noodle restaurant originally began in Soho, New York where it was regularly voted into the top 10 NY restaurants in the Zagat guide (the only Asian restaurant to make the list). The owner closed the New York outpost and returned to take over his father’s restaurant to reinvent his concept in Tokyo. The result is a stark but busy establishment in the middle of Roppongi that buzzes with young and affluent Tokyoites, drawn to the long list of seasonal starters and soba noodles made fresh on-site every day. The pricing is much more reasonable than its New York predecessor and it’s two doors up from R2, a lively bar which is an expat institution.
