I looooove freshly hand made soba! I used to absolutely love this shop when it was in Queensland so I was extremely excited to hear that one of the grasshoppers from the original restaurant in Queensland decided to open a shop in Melbourne! I think once you try hand made soba, you can't go back to store bought ones! (Unless you're making something fusion like soba salad!) Compared to the original restaurant, there was room for improvement (e.g. the sauce was a little salty and the soba was slightly less flavoursome). But I was so excited to eat fresh hand made soba again! Would go back there anytime!
