Cold soba bento. Duck pond

Cold soba bento . Duck pond

Since Summer I´ve been craving for cold soba.  I didn´t have soba noodles at home when it was very hot here and the main japanese grocery in Helsinki was closed for vacations.

I could have tried to get it from some other asian shops downtown, but I didn´t bother to go to search for it ( call me lazy, yep).

Now that I finally bought the noodles  the weather got cold!  Oh well, anyways.. ;)

The contents of the boxes: soba noodles, thinly sliced carrots , turkey ham, cucumber, omelette strips, cherry tomato, green grapes, peach slices and a bottle of tsuyu sauce. The ducks are made from gouda cheese. Before eating I sprinkled nori strips on top.

They look much more a salad than the proper “Zarusoba” (the japanese dish of cold soba with dipping sauce). For the “adults” version I added toasted sesame seeds and grated ginger just before serving.

    This is so cute! How’d you do the duck eyes so round? A punch hole? Yummy yummy, I miss my mom’s cold noodle dishes like these.. Especially during summer months. This takes me back to my youth, minus the cute duckies! lol.
