Be careful when you eat curry noodles because you don’t want curry sauce splashing on your shirt.

Traditional cold noodles come in two varieties: (1) Mori soba and (2) Zaru soba.  Mori-soba has thinly sliced dried seaweed garnished on the top.  Zaru-soba doesn’t come with this, therefore, it is lower priced.  You dip your noodles in a dipping sauce.  Add sliced green onions, wasabi paste and red pepper to the sauce.  After you finish your noodles, they will bring you boiled soba water for you to pour into your dipping sauce to make a soup to drink.
