I'm a big fan of quick and easy meals. My dad has been raving on about some cold soba noodles that my cousin gave him. So I went to World Square and bought a few ingredients so I can try and replicate it. I bought some organic soba noodles, bonito flakes, shredded seaweed and soba dipping sauce.
I cooked the soba as per the instructions on the packet. It took a mere 4 minutes for the soba to cook. I then soaked it in some cold water and set it aside. Once this was cooled I added the soba dipping sauce and tossed it. I then served it with some bonito flakes and shredded seaweed on top.
The soba was delicious. Although I didn't make the sauce myself I was a little proud that I managed to replicate what my cousin did for my dad. He woke up that night just before heading out to work and ate a big bowl of soba. He then told me that he would eat the rest in the morning. See my father is very hard to please when it comes to food. He only ever eats what my mum cooks. For him to claim that big bowl of soba was like me winning a car. I was thrilled.
