Izushi Soba

Izushi Soba

Izushi Soba

Izushi`s speciality dish is Izushi soba which are noodles made of buckwheat. They are eaten with the Japanese soup stock dashi. Daikon (radish), grated yam, wasabi (Japanese horseradish), spring onions and raw egg (optional) are added to the dashi to taste. The freshly made noodles are then dipped in this soup mixture and eaten. At the end of the meal, the remaining soup is mixed with sobayu (the hot water in which the noodles were boiled) and can be drunk as a sort of tea. Izushi soba is served on lots of small Izushi ceramic plates. Enjoy as many plates as you want and see who can get the biggest stack!
