Metro: Sangenjaya's insider take:

Those seeking a break from fluorescent-lit, hole-in-the-wall noodle shops will feel right at home at this soba restaurant in Sangenjaya (a tony neighborhood five minutes from Shibuya by subway). Its large, rough-hewn tables are occupied by locals and local celebrities alike (don't be surprised if you find yourself sharing one with a Japanese supermodel or soccer hero), who all flock to the tucked-away location for its unparalleled take on buckwheat. That includes everything from its mouthwatering soba noodles with white-sesame dipping sauce to the tea served at the end of the meal. But don't be afraid to go against the grain: Baked edamame, grilled duck, and the root-vegetable salad are all menu standouts. If it's too loud, try the smaller, more intimate Ebisu location.—Rebecca Willa Davis
