Oyaki & hot soba dishes - where in Toronto?

balthazar Nov 7, 2012 09:44 PM

Has anyone got recommendations for places serving good hot soba noodle dishes (e.g. in soup)?

Also, does anyone know of any places in TO that make Nagano-style oyaki buns (e.g. pumpkin, mushroom, etc.) ?

I love this food from when I travelled and stayed in the Nagano area in Japan years ago. I don't know of any place in TO that has oyaki. Any recos appreciated!

    Zen does a great tempura soba - years ago, when I was lookking for the best broth in the city, the CH'ers steered me to Zen, and we have been going at least once a month since then. Of course, I have ever eaten anything at Zen that I have not liked, but the tempura soba soup on a cold fall or winter night is a treat.

      Thanks Phoenix! I will try Zen. Tempura soba soup is my favourite - exactly what I was looking for.

      You can get frozen oyakis from Sanko's on Queen W & Niagara.

        These guys make the best Soba in town. Really good stuff.

        As for your Oyaki buns, can't help you there. Take a veggie dumpling home from a Taiwanese place and grill it!

                Ah, I've heard of them, my Japanese shiatsu therapist knows them and recommended them a while back. I will have to check that out. Thanks!
