A bowl of hot broth with noodles can give a person comfort during the cold seasons, heals ones soul and restores ones strength. Cocoron, which means “heartwarming” in Japanese, is perfectly named for this Lower East Side soba shop. Yes soba. Seems like ramen has pretty much dominated NYC with over a dozen ramen shops in the city and in Brooklyn. But we can’t forget about udon or soba.
When we think of soba we think room temperature noodles, dipped in sauce and consume. At Cocoron you can get that but don’t expect the typical version. Here they offer few different broths with different stuff in it like bonito flakes and grated daikon or natto served on the side. What you can also get is soba in hot broth. Yes, why not?
