Once you obtain the kitchen in the Medium House upgrade, you can start cooking Zaru Soba right away.
You’ll still need some equipment to be able to cook the dish, though, so make sure your kitchen is well-stocked.
The equipment needed to make Zaru Soba can be bought from Jeff at the General Store.
The downside is that Jeff sells his kitchen equipment one by one, in 10-day intervals after you buy the first of Gotts’ house remodeling upgrades.
This means that you can only access the next piece of equipment 10 days after the previous one becomes available for purchase.

How To Sell Zaru Soba
Any dishes made in your kitchen can’t be shipped through Zack and the Shipping Bin.
However, you can start selling food to Huang once you become friends with him at 4 friendship notes.
To sell a dish to Huang, stand in front of his counter while holding the item. Don’t interact directly with his sprite, as it will register as a gift instead.
Huang will then offer you a price, which you can actually reject for a chance at getting him to bid higher.
The price range for Zaru Soba is anywhere between 280 G and 370 G.
If Huang offers you 330 G for the item, for example, you can turn him down and try again to get a higher price.
Keep in mind that his bids will never go lower or higher than this defined range, so 370 G is the maximum price you can get for selling Zaru Soba.
