Business type characteristics
The ingredients for Soba are buckwheat flour, a small amount of flour, and water. The reason for using wheat flour is that as buckwheat flour is low in starch, adding wheat flour acts as a binding agent. It makes soba not to be torn off, if it is noodle shaped.Besides this, there is also a soba called “Juwari Soba” that is made only with buckwheat flour and water without using any flour. It can also be eaten by vegans.
The business style of Japanese soba restaurants is roughly divided into 2 types. The first is a stand-up eating soba restaurant that has no seats, that is easy to eat like fast food. The second is a soba restaurant that has luxury seats. People eat in a relaxing atmosphere like a Washoku restaurant. It serves not only soba but also Washoku and sake there.
High technique is required to make soba with good taste and smell.The technique is to mix ingredients, cut into noodles, and boil.Also, if you want to make “Juwari Soba” that does not use wheat flour, you must have even higher technique.
It is also important to make soba soup.As the soup is made from dashi and some seasoning, delicate techniques are required.
If you want to open a soba restaurant that also serves washoku, you will need the skill to make not only soba but also traditional Japanese foods.
