Kyoto….Fish Somen Noodles | 京都の魚そうめん

Have you ever come across Somen?

Somen is a very thin (about 1mm in diameter) white noodle which is often eaten during the hot summer months. See more infos on Somen if you are not familiar with this traditional Japanese noodle.

But this is a ‘Fish Somen Noodle‘, a unique thin noodle produced from white fish only made in Kyoto not around the Tokyo (Kanto) district.

The white fish somen is a standard fish somen, the green is a fish some with matcha tea powder added to produce color and tea aroma. It is eaten with a light soy sauce broth.


 

夏になると期間限定で友人が取り寄せてくれる 「茨木屋の「魚そうめん」

東京人にはとっても珍しく白身魚(かまぼこ)で作る魚そうめんは毎夏大切に頂く贈り物です。京都は「はも」を良く食べる文化。はもと一緒に魚そうめんを頂くのが京都人の食べ方だそうです。

抹茶を刷り込んだ「魚そうめん」。

夏の風情を感じさせる色合いで日本の食べ物文化を誇らしげに思ったりもする瞬間です。

そのままでも、お吸い物でも、酢の物でも、、爽やかにしてくれる食べ物です。

オススメ〜。
