It's still tough to beat soba at otafuku. I can hear about places that shuffle you in and out quickly with their handmade soba, but why is it never as good as this place? The rest of their food is great too. It's izakaya style, and might be one of the better in SoCal. Otafuku. The soba above is seiro with plum. Of course okra is quite great with soba.
