Cold Egg Soba 冷たい卵そば | Japan

Soba is a kind of brown noodles made from buckwheat flour. Cold egg soba is noodles in cold sauce with wasabi, scallions and raw egg. I have never wanted to try the cold soba here as the egg serves in the cold soba is totally raw. I am afraid of the egg smell if it is eaten raw and dare not challenge myself to eat raw egg except if the raw egg is use to make tiramisu. Somehow, on past few weeks, we stepped into an old soba and udon shop. Since Camus wanted to try something special in Japan, Japan local food, hence we ordered cold egg soba. Unsure about how to order cold egg soba in Japanese, after talking and describing what we wanted to the Taukeh Soh, finally we got what we want.  

 

Instant Ramen Museum | Osaka, Japan

Instant Ramen Museum is located at Ikeda-shi, Osaka. You can experience making your own cup noodle here. If you would like to make noodle from sratch, here is the place for you too. Besides, the history of the chicken ramen development, which is the world’s first instant ramen, and the changes in many products over the years can be found here too. Entrance is free unless you want to buy cup noodle or attend the making noodle class. I visited this museum to make my cup noodle. After seeing through the ramen history and development process, I bought two empty cups from vending machine inside the museum, 300 yen per cup. Then I was arranged to sit at "art class corner" to draw and decorate my cup. After finished, I proceed to collect my ramen and choose the ingredients I like. You can choose 4 out of 10 ingredients. Then you can choose your soup base before proceed to final packing. It is fun to make your own cup noodle, I did not join the making noodle class as it is reservation at earlier time. Overall, it was a fun experience here and I will enjoy my cup noodle with Camus after return to Penang.

Yakitori_3

I would like to share a very simple dish that I cooked yesterday, homemade yakitori. Yakitori (焼き鳥) is a Japanese type of skewered chicken. It is made from few bite-sized chicken meats, skewered on a bamboo skewer over charcoal.





 



Japanese like to order yakitori during dinner with a group of colleagues or friends, eat with some other dishes and drink with beer or sake , Japanese alcoholic drink.

Besides chicken, they also used chicken heart, liver, chicken wing, ox tongue, squid and others to make yakitori.

On Friday, I bought a bottle of yakitori sauce from supermarket near my company. At night, I merinate the chicken meats with the yakitori sauce. The next morning, I grilled the chicken meats and ate together with rice. I do not follow the way Japanese cook and just put the chicken on top of alluminium foil and grilled them. It was delicious and very easy to prepare.

Hi Juju, yes, you can substitute the sauce with something else..i grill it with gas cooker, they gas cooker here comes with a partition where you can grill chicken, fish or other food. Just take care of the chicken not to overcook or burn will do, no temperature setting is needed. You can grill it in your oven as well, temperature wise, maybe set it to 150deg? or 180deg? Grill until it is cook will do.
