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.
