We were supposed to have dinner with Shien Jin and Shaun at Spotted Pig restaurant tonight. But after finding out that there's a two hour wait to get a table at the restaurant, we went to SobaKoh on 5th and 2nd Ave for some good simple soba instead. Gan and I usually go there for the lunch special which includes soba, tempura, some appetizers and a dessert for about $20 per person. So when the bill came, we thought the dinner was not as worth it. I'll definitely recommend SobaKoh for lunch and not for dinner. Gan: Soba needs to be fresh and this place definitely have their soba done fresh as is demonstrated at the front of the restaurant
