So here’s what the folks at Japan Crate had to say about this variety -“Enjoy a hot bowl of this soba in its soup base, rich with flavors of bonito, soy sauce and spice.”
Yeah okay this sounds pretty good – fresh soba… Let’s do it!
Itsuki Soba – Japan
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, boil noodles in 300ml water for 1 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
A fresh soba pouch.
A dry sachet.
A light powder with a sweet scent.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, kamaboko, mentaiko furikake and spring onion. Noodles are definitely buckwheat soba. First time I think I’ve had fresh buckwheat in this form factor and it’s pretty decent. The broth was a pretty typical soy and bonito hit, however the balance of flavors worked better than any I’ve had before.. All in all alright. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901726014134.
