Hakubaku Organic Somen
The thinnest among Japanese noodles, almost like vermicelli. Somen is made from organic hard wheat and quick to cook. They are made from a hard organic wheat that gives a distinct texture and a different bite.
Traditionally served cold in Japan, in iced water with a dipping sauce, especially during the hot summer season. It can also be added to stir-fries and soups such as the popular Vietnamese noodle soup, Phở.
