The cherry blossoms are still in full bloom, but at food shops, "Sakura" sweets and drinks are appearing one after another. Pink food that feels spring makes you feel like you can survive a little cold.
I found a pale pink "Sakura Udon" at KALDI Coffee Farm. Nama udon noodles manufactured at Honda Shoten in Shimane.
It seems that cherry leaves are kneaded into the thin flat noodles (pink is a vegetable pigment). When boiled, a slightly cherry-mochi-like scent rises with steam.
Zaru udon is better if you can feel the delicate flavor. I had the impression that Kake Udon would lose to Dashi. It's not strong, but it's smooth and smooth, and it's easy for children to eat. How about a cherry-colored udon that feels spring and a celebration of the Doll's Festival?
