えいごで: Soba noodles require some attention. Use about 60-100g per portion. Don’t throw the whole packet of noodles into the water in one go, but loosen them into the boiling water.
After around three or four times of renewing the water, when it is clear after rubbing the noodles they are ready for serving. The cleaning is essential as it removes the rather unpleasantly tasting starch.
Finally we get to assembling the dish: mix one part kaeshi with four parts dashi to make the soup, more dashi if one prefers a less salty soup.
