Hiyamugi

hiyamugi
Hiyamugi is a Japanese thin noodle made of wheat flour.
Hiyamugi noodle is similar to "Somen noodle".
But hiyamugi noodle is slightly thicker than somen noodle in size.

HIyamugi is usually served in cold water with ice and some vegetables.
We take a bite full of noodles and dip in the dipping sauce, and eat.
Hiyamugi is nice in summer.

Thanks for your comments!!

Joo,
I like tomato and cucumber with it.

Iria,
We call that little cherry "sakuranbo".

Ayie,
I like somen too.
And somen in hot soup is also good.
But I prefer cold one.
