Handa Tenobe Somen"Handa Tenobe Somen" is a thick somen noodle that is unique to the Handa region of Tokushima prefecture. Speaking of somen, thin noodles are the mainstream, but handa somen is strong and is characterized by thick and firm noodle strings. The thickness of the noodles is the same as that of cold wheat! It is finished in about 1.3mm to 1.7mm.
Thick noodles produce a firm and strong body. Every time you chew, you can enjoy the chewy texture and the fluffy flavor and sweetness peculiar to wheat. With a smooth and smooth throat, you can eat as much as you want! Both cold and hot are recommended because they are thick and chewy. Not only adults but also children are addicted to it.
Handa somen, which has been regarded as a "lucky thing" because it is stretched by hand without using a knife, is a perfect gift. Even if you are a thin somen noodle, why don't you check this out? This time, I bought it by mail order for 750g (26.46oz) and 1,098 yen (tax included).
