Enjoy the hot soba on a cooler summer night and enjoy the rich flavors of soy sauce and bonito (tuna) in the broth.”

The noodle block.
A dry sachet.
A light powder.
Another dry sachet.
Looks like almost the same thing.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, kamaboko, spring onion and sansyo. Noodles definitely were a little different. They are made with yams partially – I think the ratio is more towards the wheat side. The broth is a smoky bonito and sweet affair. Not bad. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901104132245.
