  1. In downtown LA, you can find a good (not great) bowl of soba at Rikyu, in Weller Court.

    1. Yabu on Pico near Bundy is very good. They make their own soba noodles. I love cold soba. Thanks for the idea - now, I know what I'm having for dinner.

      1. There is also Yashima on the 2nd floor of the Olympic Collection on Sawtelle. They also have good udon and I enjoy the combos...I def need to go back soon to refresh my memory.

        1. Downtown:

          Suehiro (213) 626-9132
