July 26th, 2015. It was the first time I went to Abura Soba Yamatoten Tokyo at Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK. I often heard about Abura Soba but never tried by myself. So, when a friend of mine, LT, asked me to come with him to the place, I agreed happily. Then DC joined us. And after that, I came to the place over and over and over again.
It’s so easy to find the place. Located near highway exit, I found the place right away. I came in and caught a nice place. Not too spacious but big enough for lunch or dinner with family or friends.
Abura Soba (油そば) literally translates to “Oil Noodles.” Abura Soba originated from the Kitatama district of Tokyo in the early 1950s. There are a few popular chains in the Kanto area that specialize in this type of noodles, and its popularity continues to grow.

Original Abura Soba served with chopped spring onions, sesame seeds, bamboo shoots, dried seaweeds and slices of tender roast pork
Yup, this one was called the original. Actually it’s LT’s order. And when I tried the abura soba, I suddenly wanted to order it too. I guess, the original was always the best. This was also their best-seller. And, how to eat this soba? Add 2 rounds of vinegar and chili oil. Mix them all. Enjoy the abura soba. But, you can add more if you like. Just go wild with the vinegar and chili oil. LOL. The texture of the soba was delicate and so light. I love the roast pork, of course. Always love pork hihihi.

Abura Soba with spicy miso sauce, served with half boiled egg, chopped spring onions, sesame seeds, bamboo shoots, dried seaweeds and slices of tender roast pork.
It’s DC’s order. I didn’t try it because it’s spicy.
Aburi Chasu Don 69k
Yup, this was mine. But I didn’t really like it. I prefer the Abura Soba. For me, the rice was too dry. The chasu was okay, I just didn’t really like the rice. Maybe next time I should try to add the vinegar and chili oil.
Handmade Dumpling 32k
Not my favourite. There’s something funny about the aroma. I didn’t know what it is. I just didn’t like it. LT felt the same with me, but DC was just fine with it. So, we let him finished them all. LOL.
Overall, I was very happy finally could eat here. Thanks LT and DC for the lovely day. Btw, I have a good news. They will open a new outlet in Grand Indonesia. Woohoo! *dancing all around my room* CANNOT WAIT!!!
