Shinshu Soba Dokoro [Sojibo] / 信州そば処 「そじ坊」




Summer is always a great season to go out for soba.  This is a soba chain restaurant called [Sojibo].  The one we went to is located in the Carrot Tower in Sangenjaya.  I chose a simple zaru soba / tempura set while Mikako ordered the hiyashi sansai tororo soba.  Our sobas are served with fresh wasabi that you grate yourself.

夏の季節になるとやっぱ冷えた蕎麦も食べたくなるな。今回紹介する店は蕎麦のチェン店信州そば処「そじ坊」。私たちが行ったのはキャロットタワーの地下にある三軒茶屋店。自分が注文したのはざるそばと夏野菜の天ぷらセット。美香子が注文したのは冷やし山菜とろろそば。この店は生わさび使用でとっても良い感じ。



Zaru Soba / ざるそば



Assorted summer vegetables tempura / 夏野菜の天ぷら


The vegetables included asparagus, eggplant (aubergines if you want to be English), okra, squash, and myoga (I'm not sure what that translates to in English).

今日の天ぷらはアスパラ、茄子、おくら、みょうが、とかぼちゃ。



Hiyashi sansai tororo soba / 冷やし山菜とろろそば


Hm, how to translate that in English.  Hiyashi means cold.  Sansai are mountain vegetables, tororo is ground up mountain potato, and soba of course are the noodles.



Fresh wasabi (with grater) / 生わさび




Omochi also served with our set.


セットに餅もありました。







Bon Appetit!

いただきます!

Hi, question:

I'm trying to cover "Sojibo" for a US publication. What does that mean anyway? How does it translate? "Sojibo"? Thanks!

Sorry I am late in getting back to you. I tried to see if Sojibo had their own website but was without luck.

I'm not sure how it would translate. However, it is a popular chain shop. Not sure what else I can tell you.
