Soba Yu



Soba Yu is the water that soba noodles have simmered in.

When a customer in a restaurant has finished eating his soba noodles, it's brought to the table in a small pot.

You pour it into the remaining broth in your noodle bowl to make a "final course" soup.

The simmering water is considered to contain nutritious elements from the noodles that dissolved into the water.

Language Notes

"Yu" means "water" in Japanese.
