I had the opportunity to go to Tokyo for a week recently with a friend at his house, one of the days he asked if I was hungry and of course, I said yes. Shortly after, he proceeded to tell me about the BEST Aburasoba 油そば place in all of Japan, arguably. I laughed and asked myself “how good could this actually be?” So, we ended up in Waseda city after taking the Tokyo Metro and after about a mile walk we had arrived to our destination! The place was very hole-in-the-wall so I was hesitant to eat it, bugave it a shot and I am so glad I did because honestly, It WAS the best Aburasoba I’ve ever had and I have dreams about it to this day. I will definitely be returning there whenever I am in Tokyo!
