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. Tongue out

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.

 

This was how the cold soba served. At first, the cold sauce was pouring on the soba in a bowl, sprinkled with scallions, then raw egg and finally added wasabi at side.

The egg was beaten and mixes well with the soba before eating. Surprisingly it was delicious! No raw egg smells at all and wasabi was added to enhance the taste. It was really a wonderful experience in Japan. The shop is just located beside Hitotsubashigakuen station.

Wonder what else that I can try in Japan before I go back to my lovely hometown in Penang. Many of the traditional foods in Japan are delicious and most importantly, they can't be easily found in Malaysia. Those are the foods that I want to try out.
