About Mutsuko Soma and Kamonegi

Kamonegi is a Seattle based soba pop up founded by chef Mutsuko Soma. Soma studied traditional soba making in Tokyo, Japan before deciding to bring this unique art form to Seattle. While in Japan, Soma learned that Washington state was among the largest producers of buckwheat in the United States.

Today, she operates pop ups through Kamonegi, named after a classic Japanese culinary pairing of duck and leeks and her signature soba dish of the same name.  Through Kamonegi, Soma introduces soba mixed, rolled, and cut by hand; a specific process that produces silky, lightly buoyant noodles that retain the nutty aroma of buckwheat. She aims to bring Kamonegi to other locations to highlight the previously underrated noodle and share the experience of making and consuming soba.
