Review of Oga's Japanese Cuisine Restaurant

As I have written previously, it ain't easy to find authentic food at a reasonable price. That is why I like Sharaku in New York City for Japanese food. Unfortunately, it took me some time to find Oga's Japanese Restaurant (Natick, MA), despite the fact that we have driven by it for years - in the meatime we were happy with our very own soba recipe. In many ways, this is THE Japanese restaurant with the best value in the Boston area, particularly if you go for lunch.

I like the ambiance and the manner in which the food is served. The service is so good that I was reminded of Japan. I had a chicken teriyaki dish while Lorena had a selection of maki rolls. We were very pleased with our dishes. Strongly recommended for fans of Japanese cuisine.

Recipe for soba noodles

Picture of soba noodles with seafoodFor those of us who like Japanese cuisine, noodles are part of the fun. However, we all have complicated relationships with noodles. For instance, while I love ramen, I do not like soba. The main reason is that soba is typically served cold.

There are always creative ways to play with the recipe and that is exactly what Lorena does. She treats soba (it has good nutritive value and that maybe one of the reasons why Japanese women do not get fat) like any other noodle.

Try this: Boil the noodles, add vegetables and meats of your choice (we cook it with scallops), add your favorite sauce and you are good to go.
