Zenkojimonzen Traditional Shinshu Soba
It offers a smooth and silky texture in your throat, with a distinct aroma when you bite into them.
They've gone through multiple iterations in their quest to replicate the texture of fresh soba even with dried noodles.
They've achieved a slender, firm texture in our thin noodles, providing an excellent bite.
Made from the heart of soba, these noodles are designed to be unassuming, never tiring your palate, and finer in appearance compared to regular soba.
Typically, only noodles that contain over 40% of buckwheat flour can bear the shinshu name.
Originating from the region of the same name, Shinshu as well as the Nagano Prefecture as a whole, has long been known as an area where the quality of soba noodles is supreme.
What Makes Shinshu Soba Special?
Made with luxurious buckwheat proudly grown in the Nagano Prefecture, it is carefully grounded in a stone mill to form the flour.
This is used to make the brown soba noodles that is both smooth and chewy in texture. With a pleasant aroma, it will be watering your tastebuds before you even take a bite.
Through a lot of trial and error, the soba production has advanced to the point where even the dry soba noodles can replicate the texture of fresh ones very closely. Characterised with a firmness at first but effortlessly soft to bite, the eating experience of high quality shinshu soba is evidently clear.
The thinly cut soba is both elegant in appearance and delicate in flavour.
A mix of both savoury and sweet, it is a perfected blend that has been beloved for generations.
To accentuate the prized texture to its fullest, eating it in the form of cold zaru soba is recommended.
History of Soba
The cool climate and narrow land areas of the region have made the farming of rice and wheat difficult but allows buckwheat to thrive.
From here, buckwheat continued to be cultivated in Nagano, reaching the point of fame across the nation with no signs of slowing down.
Some theories suggest that it was created in the Shinano province (Nagano Prefecture today) by some point in 1645.
Others suggest that it was birthed in the Yamanashi Prefecture by 1704, and although there is no way to confirm any of these theories, we know that it first started to gain popularity as a special occasion treat during the early Edo period.
The fact that such an adored dish is produced from the elements that make Nagano special, it truly is an ideal symbol of the prefecture.
