Soba noodle was originally served chilled with a dipping sauce, but people eventually found it easier to pour the broth over noodles. Soba served in hot broth as a noodle soup became popular in cold winters, and for variety, different ingredients were added as toppings. Soba is very nourishing, and there is a legend which tells of a monk and a hermit who secluded themselves deep in the mountains and survived only on Soba in the old days.
