Somen noodles are very thin noodles usually served cold with dipping sauce and are a popular dish in the summer. Made from the finest quality wheat flour, local sea salt, and pure sesame oil manufactured by Kadoya, a renowned local sesame oil producer, these noodles are superb. At just 0.8mm thick, the noodles are painstakingly crafted by the most skilled culinary artists over a span of two days and dried outside with natural sunshine and a winter sea breeze. The result is well worth it--a light, flavorful, refreshing noodle that makes the perfect cold noodle treat on hot summer days!

1. In a large pot, bring plenty of water to a boil.
2. Add somen noodles and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Drain into a colander and rinse under cold running water for 10 to 20 seconds.
4. Put the noodles in a bowl of cold water and rinse gently by hand.
5. Place the noodles on a plate and put ice cubes on it to keep somen freshly cold.
6. Enjoy with mentsuyu dipping sauce and assorted garnishes such as scallions and grated ginger.

Wheat Flour, Salt, Sesame Oil.

Shimanohikari Handmade Somen

These noodles are a bit pricey, but in my opinion, worth the cost. Excellent flavor and mouth-feel when used as a dipping noodle, or added to a soup base. Recommended.

Top notch Somen!

This is my second purchase of Shimanohikari Somen, and I will keep ordering this since while family loves it. Great taste and texture. I am so happy that I can buy in US. Thank you Umami Insider!

Love these noodles

These noodles have a great texture and taste. We put these noodles in soups like Filipino sinigang or Chinese pork belly noodle soup. A good noodle to have in our pantry.
