Ichii is a one person, one order restaurant, meaning that everyone in your party will have to place an order. They would also very much like people to refrain from bringing any food or drinks from outside into the restaurant.
When you order a dish, such as Seiro Soba, that comes with a side of dipping sauce, near the end of the meal you will be given soba-yu. Pour the soba-yu into your remaining dipping sauce to make a delicious, umami filled soup! Alternatively, try the soba-yu on its own and see what you think.
Also, it’s not necessary to finish all the warm dipping sauce. That being said, it’s also not rude if you decide to drink it either. In fact, trying the dipping sauce on its own will give you an unadulterated look at the kombu utilized in the dashi.
Limited to only ten orders a day, Soba Shubo Ichii also sell a buckwheat seed packed crème Brulee!
With the aroma of soba, this crème Brulee features a sprinkling of charred buckwheat seeds which, together with the crackly caramel add a beautiful accent to the dessert’s texture.
The aroma from the buckwheat seeds as they crack in your mouth in combination with the rich, creaminess of the crème Brulee makes for a seriously outstanding dessert.
For those wanting to end their meal with something sweet, we recommend getting here early and ordering this wonderfully unique crème Brulee.
