Cold soba bento. Duck pond
August 30, 2010
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.
