Oyaki & hot soba dishes - where in Toronto?

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!

  1. 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!

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

          Thanks happycamper! You've made my day :)

        2. 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.
