Soba, noodles made of buckwheat flour, is a very simple, popular dish in Japan. In its most simple form, kakesoba, it is served cold with cold dipping sauce called tsuyu. Soba can be served cold, as the kakesoba or in a hot soup, also consisting of tsuyu. Soba also has variations, some popular options include soba in warm soup with grated yam, or tempura soba.
Although the name soba appears in other noodles like "yakisoba" because soba is sometimes used to refer to noodles, it is more properly understood referring specifically to the noodles made from buckwheat flour.
For those who enjoy green tea, you may enjoy green tea soba, or "matcha soba". The buckwheat flour is mixed with green tea powder, resulting in green noodles that have a hint of the green tea flavor.
