#1728: Yamadai Tenobe Somen

Here’s another one that was sent to me by the folks at Exotic Noods – thanks! This looks to be a somen served hot,m which would make it along the lines of nyumen which is served in Winter.I must admit, when I see low sodium and low calorie I usually don’t shudder with delight; I’ve had some pretty bad ones that have these tags. But, you never know! Let’s have a look at this one!

Detail from the side panels (click image to enlarge). May contains fish – not sure.

Detail of the lid (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block – very thin noodles.

The soup base sachet.

Has a kind of soy scent.

The garnish sachet.

An interesting assortment!

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles hydrated well. They were quite thin; like angel hair pasta with a slight crumble that worked well. The broth had a definite taste of katsuobushi and was pretty good. The addition of the fried tofu was nice, but the kelp was a little much for me. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4903088010472.
