Soba Lounge - Great New Items on the Menu
Well, well, well....someone took a trip to Momofuku! I was pleasantly surprised to find a whole slew of new dishes as Soba a couple of weekends ago. As I went through the menu, my interest was piqued at some of the new dishes. Pork Belly and Steam Bun appetizers? Roast Chicken Ramen bowl with fried egg...oh and the best part! Homemade spicy pickles. This was the best meal I have had in a long time at Soba. (not that the prior meals were bad at all) The food was prepared beautifully. The waitstaff described each dish so well. I have always enjoyed Soba and was my socks were knocked off at the last go around. My husband and I just moved back to Pittsburgh after a short stint away. We chose Soba as our first meal after moving in. It was an amazing choice!

My friends want to try out Soba as they live close by. Did you try the ramen? Was it good? I'm not a fan of fusion food (as I'm Chinese and prefer authentic flavors). If you have any recommendations of what to try, I'd appreciate it. I'm tempted to order the ramen and get a bunch of sides of veggies - bok choy & green beans with chilis and kim chi sounds good (although it almost pains me to pay for kim chi when it's usually free).
Ericandblueboy - sorry for the delayed response. I see you already came and went. I loved the ramen...sorry yours was dry. I thought the flavors married well and the fried egg made it decadent. Give Eleven a try - it is worth it. If you order off the tavern menu, try the crazy eleven burger...you'll need a nap afterwards.
