Yuzu-kiri at Shimbashi Soba

Yuzu-kiri Seiro

Making soba by handShimbashi Soba had a special citrus-based yuzu-kiri soba today, so I gave it a shot. There really wasn't much to speak of. It was actually a bit boring. The citrus taste was present, but so mild that it was hard to make out (plus the taste got covered up by the soba sauce anyway). They gave daikon instead of wasabi too (BTW, they are still out of fresh wasabi after so many months, apparently because prices are too high right now or something). And while I love daikon, in this case I needed a bit more punch, so in the end, this was a bit of a bummer. In fact, I ended up getting another plate afterwards, but this time being just normal soba.
