I realize this is a bit late, but soba noodles are buckwheat noodles.
You can occasionally find them at health food stores labeled as such, too.

Subject: RE: soba noodles
Soba noodles are Japanese - in England they're pretty easy to buy from any
supermarket but I think we have more Japanese produce here than you?
(correct me if I'm wrong). They're quite similar to Chinese noodles but
seem to have more substance and I don't think they have egg in them. They
come in whole-wheat as well which is my preferred sort.
Whenever we go to Japanese restaurants (like Wagamama in the UK) we always
have vegetarian Yaki Soba, which is kind of like vegetable chow mein only
with Japanese spices, tofu, and really great vegetables like Pok Choi. If
anyone has a recipe for this, I'd be really grateful.
G'day! When I was flipping around through a magazine, I happened to glance
over a recipe promoting whole-grain foods and an ingredient was "soba
noodles". What are those? How accessible are they? This was in a recent
Ladies' Home Journal mag., so I figure they must be rather easy to buy.
