Sōmen Lunch

Posted in Food, Lately 5 Comments








It was a pleasant sunny Saturday afternoon, my friend and I were just hanging out, chatting, taking pictures, chatting, taking more pictures, etc….

I felt like Sōmen (very thin, white Japanese noodles), and I made us a quick lunch.

Sōmen was served cold with a light flavoured dipping sauce; Tsuyu (a katsuobushi-based sauce). The green onion, ginger, sesame seeds, wakame (seaweed) and the thinly sliced egg omelette…. I like to put a little bit everything in my dipping sauce to enjoy the flavour together.

I didn’t used to like Sōmen when I was a child, but now I understand why my grandparents loved it so much.

Sōmen tastes like summer, the long hot summer in Japan that seemed to go on forever.

    Hi Shirley,

    Thank you for your warm words! I’m almost settled in my new place, but I still have lots of home projects I’d like to do! More organizing ;)

    Wow, this looks so delicious. Definitely captures the essence of what a Japanese summer feels like (and tastes like!).
