Bar Soba

Pan-Asian street food, cheap cocktails and DJs keep this bar loud and lively.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This New Town bar walks the line between bar and restaurant, offering pan-Asian street food, cheap cocktails and loud music to a young, lively crowd. The menu covers all the bases, from dumplings and noodles to curries and rice dishes, and takes its fusions to the extreme with choices such as cheeseburger spring rolls and a salt and pepper fish finger sandwich. Highlights include a buttermilk fried chicken katsu curry and soft shell crab with chilli-lime mayo. The cocktails take equal billing with the food, and the weekend boozy brunch menu combines the two into a fixed-price offer. Student nights, cheap deals and regular DJs ensure this place is buzzing throughout the week.
