|Soba Tea at Cocoron Soba|
Cocoron Soba is a tiny, Japanese noodle joint that probably can't fit more than a dozen people, if that. The kitchen is open and you can watch the three men behind the counter work their noodle slinging magic flawlessly. Jessie was a Cocoron veteran so I let her do the ordering for me (a rarity trust me). We started out with a piping hot cup of toasty, nutty Soba Tea that never seemed to be empty. They even give you a little basket full of soba to steep as they refill. This began to help us melt off the slush from the day.

We also had a plate of the Potato, Pork and Okara Croquettes. They were pipping hot pillows of fried yumminess. We have no idea what the sauce was, but it was damn tasty.
We finished our soup and discussed our dessert options as two fellow Ludlowdians (a term used to refer to residents of our building, the Ludlow) sat down next to us to have their own dinner. We gushed over the amazing meal that we had just devoured and then eyeballed what they were ordering for next time - and there will be many next times.

Jessie and I found happiness and warmth in a bowl of noodles and it was one of the best meals I've ever had. Of course, the good company had a lot to do with it too!
