Re: “Soba Ichi Serves Impressive Handmade Soba Noodles — but the Setting Complicates Things


The menu prices for artisan hand made soba are more than fair. Not everyone in Oakland wants this, and there are myriad establishments for any number of cuisines dotted throughout the city that are entirely affordable.

The level of craft combined with the aesthetics of the space warrant fair market renumeration to the creators. It is absolute BS that every restaurant has to be geared for all seasons and pocket books.

For some this will be a special occasion locale and for others something other. This is why Oakland is so magical, there is room for the expression of the arts, and in this case the art of food. It doesn't have to, nor should it be cheap or free.

By the way, I am one of those for whom it will be special occasions, and I am good with that, and will savor the privilege of partaking in what refinement of the art of soba these folks are manifesting.

Politically correct is getting off the charts and getting on my nerves.
