Soba is a common Japanese noodle dish, and has made several appearances in the Cooking Mama series.


Soba is the Japanese term for buckwheat. Soba is somewhat the opposite of udon, being a very thin noodle made from buckwheat flour, giving it a dull, brown color. It is usually served cold on a tray, though some may prefer eating it warm. In the Cooking Mama series, the chilled variant is made, where buckwheat dough is sliced with a special knife, boiled, strained, and chilled.

Soba is typically paired with a strong dipping sauce made of dashi stock, sweet soy sauce, and rice wine, but any other sauce can be used.
