Looks so pretty! I love soba! Usually it's very plain looking when I order it at Japanese restaurants. Yours looks amazing! :-)

Hello, I've visited your blog a couple of times and I think some of your food really look so yummy! Can I ask what are the ingredients for making something like the original soba sauce, as I've searched in Singapore but can't find any that does not contain bonito or any fish extract in those bottled ones that they sell in stores!!! Would really appreciate it if you could share, thank you! :)

Hi live your life,

Thank you so much. No problem, Yes, i have a recipe for this, go to this:

http://crystalbyblog.blogspot.com/2008/07/cha-soba-or-cold-soba.html

You can omit alcohol if you don't consume and adjust other ingredients to your liking, because of the different brand of soy sauce and personal taste. Not difficult at all.

Cheers :)
