Back in the Fall, when the weather was nicer, my friend and I spent the day running errands, and when we got hungry, we realized we were at the lower East side. Yelping up a place, we found “Cocoron- Soba”. Cocoron means “heart-warming” in Japanese. It’s located at 61 Delancey St
(between Eldridge St & Allen St).
If you guys read from my previous post, I was never really a huge fan of Japanese food, and Soba definitely wasn’t something I craved, but I decided to give this place a chance. It was packed. Honestly, the place is probably 50×50 square feet, with a bar that sat about 8 people and maybe four other 2 seaters squished at the side. The restroom was probably 1.5x.1.5 square foot, and it was VERY CRAMP. But, none the less, they were able to dazzle me with amazing, amazing soba. I ordered the Tsukemen Soba (dipping soba– they have a simliar dish for ramen) The soup is kept separate from the soba so when you’re ready to dunk your cold soba noodles into the soup, you can do so at your own pace. This keeps the noodles firm and bouncy. It was delicious, rich and so, so tasty! I ordered the “Stamina Dip Soba” which is pretty much the pork-based broth soba combination. It was so delicious even drinking the soup was an option!
Atmosphere: .5/5 TOO CROWDED. Don’t even bother going with 3+ people. You’ll never get a seat. I went during lunchtime and it was already insane, if you went there for dinner, I’m sure the waits would be like…. hours.
