Village Voice's Description

What this diminutive new soba restaurant lacks in size, it makes up for in flavor. The menu is divided into cold and hot soba and lists the health benefits of each dish (as in "For that groggy hangover, freshen up with the natto soba"). Among the hot choices, try the stamina soba, showered with minced scallions and thinly sliced pork in a lightly smoky broth, and for the cold, the oroshi soba. The broths are all rich and comforting--apropos since "cocoron" means heartwarming in Japanese.

    Try the Stamina Soba, which combines savory and briny seaweed-bonito stocks and features pork belly, scallion and a plump ginger-chicken meatball. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.

    Everything is good here.

    Natto (fermented soybean) on "cold soba is mixed with egg, soy, onions and crushed sesame seeds. This dish is an amazing taste experience, sour and sweet and salty at the same time." ($8.50).

    Best mochi ice cream ever

  • Charles B. on 12/13/12

    start out with some delectable Tofu that'll make you feel like you're in Tokyo, savor the incredible broth of the Stamina soba, and finish it off with the green tea affogato. this place is money.
