Thinly slice the green onion.
Pour the bonito & sea tangle (or bonito) soup stock into a pan. Bring to a boil on medium heat. Add the sugar and soy sauce.
Add the cooked buckwheat noodles (soba) and cover the pan and boil for a couple of minutes. Remove from heat.
Serve in a big bowl and decorate with the Japanese-style croquette.
Sprinkle the buckwheat noodles (soba) with the sliced green onions and shichimi (seven-spice seasoning), if desired.
Korokke soba is almost always served at soba noodle shops in the Tokyo area. A lot of Japanese don't know this dish and think there is a mismatch between soba and korokke (croquette). However, it is very well-received by some soba lovers. Korokke soaked in soup reduces its oily taste and is delicious with soba.
