1. Honmura An Tokyo

Provided by Foursquare

Honmura An is a Michelin-starred soba (buckwheat noodles) restaurant located near Roppongi Station. Honmura An first opened in New York but closed down in 2007 when Koichi Kobari, the owner, decided to move back to his home country.  

Honmura An is known for pulling off a rare feat in using almost 100% buckwheat flour when preparing their famed noodles. Buckwheat flour has a tendency to fall apart if not mixed with regular flour, meaning most soba restaurants tend to use a hybrid, but not Honmura An. The heightened taste is a soba sensation.
