Ichimi-an – One of the Best Soba shops in the South Bay

March 14, 2010 Gourmet, Japan No Comments

Located next to the other Japanese stores (i.e. Nijiya, Koraku, Book-Off, etc) in Rolling Hills Plaza, this tiny shop makes AMAZING soba with quality ingredients. In fact, they import the buckwheat to make soba directly from Japan “on K-Line vessels in refrigerated containers to keep them fresh as possible.”


I liked how they brought out soba-yu towards the end of the meal, without me having to request it. Authentic Japanese!

Though known primarily as a soba shop, they do have other things on the menu. They have many advertisements up for tempura items, none of which I had. Instead, I sampled a mini chirashi don. The fish in the chirashi don were fresh, and the rice was flavorful. I did appreciate that it came with a shiso leaf to wrap my favorite piece of sashimi with. Yum!

Lastly, this place does not serve alcohol. However, they do encourage you to BYOB! I’ll have to keep that in mind, the next time I come. Cheers!
