Delicious Creamy Somen Noodles In Ebisu At Sososo


You can enjoy an Azushima-style somen in Ebisu at a restaurant called Sososo. Their somen noodles are much more springy than the standard ones. A new kind of somen that is worth the try.

A Somen Retaurant Serving A specialty From Azushima

Restaurants specializing in somen (a kind of very thin white noodles) are rare in Tokyo so this new restaurant has garnered considerable attention from gourmet media outlets since its open in January of 2018.

Open For Lunch Or Dinner

Somen is the perfect meal to have for lunch (from 11 AM) or dinner (closes at midnight). Sososo is even open late night (until 4 AM) on days before holidays, so you could have it as an after-drinking late night snack.

A Unique Type Of Somen Made With Sesame Oil

This is the signature dish of the house. It is an egg for which the white is beaten into a meringue and the yolk is served raw on top. It's called the Fuwafuwa Kamatama and is ¥650. It has a delightful fluffy texture.

The somen noodles have a rare particularity: they are made with sesame oil.
They also serve it with the perfect type of soy sauce that was selected just for it.
The best way to enjoy the dish is to mix everything together. There is a filling volume of somen the dish is hearty.
What's surprising about these noodles is their firmness. Standard somen noodles are soft and these are al dente. I really enjoyed this special texture which went really well with the creamy sauce. And with the volume that you get, it's hard to believe that the dish is just ¥650.

When you visit again, be sure to try the variations

Generally speaking, Somen is a simple dish made of cold noodles, but at Sososo, they have so many tantalizing variations.

One that you should generally try is the Mentaiko Cream Somen (¥1,000). Mentaiko is a popular Japanese ingredient that consists of spicy cod roe, and boy does it go well with this creamy somen dish!
Once you mix everything, the mentaiko colours the dish into a light pink.
The rich stew wraps the somen for a perfect combination of taste and texture. You can also feel the little grains of the mentaiko packed with their seafood umami. Add to that the fresh accent of the perilla herb and you have an irresistible dish that you'll want to have many times.


Sososo is a great restaurant worth the try in Ebisu, whether you're a somen fan or not. What they offer is really unique and it's a really cheap option too for the area. Furthermore, since it's open late, you can even go there after drinking in one of the many bars and izakayas of the fashionable Tokyo neighbourhood.
