No surprise that I'm going to say I loved it! But it's a definite stop for me from now on. I had the Kimchi ramen and it was fabulous! The place is so tiny so I suggest an early lunch.

Ramen noodles are made with wheat flour. Soba noodles are made with buckwheat (gluten free) and wheat. You will have to contact the restaurant and see if they have soba noodles made just with buckwheat.
