Abura Soba is a Japanese soup-less ramen shop with over 20 location in Japan. At the time of this review they have two locations in Taipei. It’s a special Japanese ramen because the noodles are served without broth and come with oily sauce at the bottom that is mixed into your noodles — akin to Taiwanese dry noodles, but much more special because the noodles are made out of handmade buckwheat and their soy sauce and spicy miso oily sauce is of high quality. Abura Soba means oil noodles in Japanese. Since there’s no broth, they say their ramen has less caleries (if you care about that kind of thing, I don’t) and is easier on your stomach without the unhealthy broth. Some people might say that Abura Soba’s ramen isn’t sexy because it doesn’t come with broth, but I advocate its sexiness; make no mistake, it’s sexy and delicious.

It’s really easy to order at Abura Soba (they have an English menu) because there are only two oily sauce choices to go along with your noodles: soy sauce and spicy miso. I tried both of them and they were both delicious. Either choice comes with a little roasted pork, bamboo shoots, seaweed strips, and spring onions. If you want more toppings, you can add whatever you want under the topping section on the menu, including two special topping sets that they have assembled for you if you don’t know what to choose, and they’re a little cheaper than selecting all the toppings separately.

The best thing about Abura Soba is all the customization that is allowed. After applying the recommended vinegar and chili oil as the how-to menu dictates, you can also add many other things to your noodles: hot sauce, onions, garlic, yuzu pepper, Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, etc. Some of these things are free and others come at a nominal price. This is the main reason why I love Abura Soba and find it just as sexy as ramen shops that serve ramen with broth.
