Buckwheat Noodles with Herring Is Good Salty-Sweet -Yamagen in Esashi-
September 3rd, 2014
Speaking of Esashi, buckwheat noodles with herring (ニシンそば) is famous. I visited Sobakura Yamagen (そば蔵やまげん) to eat the buckwheat noodles with the herring. It was recommended from my friend. This restaurant is famous for getting the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition. Then I have to visit it.
The restraunt had a warmth of woods and had an atomosphere such as a Japanese-style barbecue cooked in front of customers in the restaurant. There were some tables, so family customers seem to enjoy. I sat at the table and ordered the buckwheat noodles with the herring. The price is JPY 930.
I ate the buckwheat noodles with the herring for the first time, and I had never known that the herring was sweet. But, the sweetness went well with the buckwheat noodles soup and it was mild by a Japanese radish and a dried laver. This was tasty. The herring was soaked in deliciousness for 3 days. The soup stock was tasty, too. The buckwheat noodles were used buckwheat flour produced in Uguigawa, Esashi Town (江差町鰔川). They grinded buckwheat on a millstone and made noodles theirselves. They worked hard to make it tasty.
