Soba Noodles: Exploring One of Japan's Most Traditional.
Soba is a very famous food for Japanese people. In Japan, when eating soba, it’s not only acceptable to slurp to enjoy the flavour, but it’s regarded as a necessary part of enjoying the noodles. In a lot of other cultures, this is a strange manner and might even been seen as rude – but in Japan, go for it! Also, you might not be familiar with what to do with all the little dishes that come with the noodles, not to mention the sobayu (to water that soba is cooked in and presented in a teapot), so I’ll walk you through how to eat the soba and also talk about some common menu items.
