Soba Noodles and Sake Are a Great Match!

The Pairing of Sake and Soba Noodles

清酒与荞麦面的搭配

Soba noodles are made of buckwheat flour, roughly as thick as spaghetti, and prepared in various hot and cold dishes. Soba dishes are very popular and easily available in Japan. When you visit a soba restaurant you might notice many sake bottles lined up on the shelves. Soba goes well with sake and there is a good reason for that. 

荞麦面由荞麦粉制成,大致与意大利面一样厚,并可以制成各种冷热菜肴。在日本荞麦面非常受欢迎,也很容易买到。当您到访荞麦面餐厅时,您可能会注意到货架上排列着许多清酒瓶。荞麦面与清酒搭配,这也是有充分理由的。

The components in soba and sake synchronize with each other creating the harmony of rich flavor. Sake is rich in amino acids which results in umami flavor. Soba is also very high in amino acids compared to udon or ramen noodles. Aspartic acid and glutamic acid are 2.1 and 1.3 times higher respectively, therefore sake and soba noodles complement each other.

荞麦面和清酒中的成分相互搭配,创造出和谐浓郁的风味。清酒富含氨基酸,可体现鲜美。与乌冬面或拉面相比,荞麦面的氨基酸含量也很高。天冬氨酸和谷氨酸分别高出2.1倍和1.3倍,因此清酒和荞麦面相辅相成极其搭配的。

Cold soba (zaru soba) is usually dipped into mentsuyu which is made from sake, mirin, soy sauce, kombu, and katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes). Kombu and katsuobushi are also known as ingredients very rich in umami components – glutamic acid and inosinic acid. This make zaru soba the perfect umami match for Japanese sake!

日式荞麦冷面(竹篓荞麦面)通常浸入由清酒、味醂、酱油、海带和鲣鱼片(干鲣鱼片)制成的荞麦面汁中食用。海带和炸猪排也富含鲜味成分非常丰富的谷氨酸和肌苷酸。这使得竹篓荞麦面成为日本清酒的完美鲜味搭配!

31st of every month is known as Soba Day in Japan, so why not make it a tradition of enjoying soba and sake at the end of every month?

在日本每月31日称为荞麦面日,那么为什么不把每个月底作为享用荞麦面和清酒的传统呢?

Sake Recommendation

清酒推荐

Eikun Kotosennen Junmai Ginjo which is super clean and fruity sake. Sweet and sour fragrance reminiscent of grapefruit, mandarin orange, pineapple and yogurt slowly spreads in the mouth until the very end of the palate. It is made with the highest quality ingredients from Kyoto prefecture. Water comes from Fushimi which is distinguished by having access to spring water of exceptional quality. This water produces elegant, not too overly sweet, and soft sake. It is made with Iwai rice which gives this sake fragrance and a nice mouthfeel.

英勋古都千年纯米吟酿,这是超级干净和果香馥郁的清酒。酸甜的果香让人感觉到到葡萄柚、柑橘、菠萝和酸奶等在口中慢慢蔓延,直到涌上上颚的尽头。它采用京都府最优质的食材酿制而成,水来自伏见,伏见以其优质泉水而著称。这种水用以产生优雅,微甜和棉柔的清酒。它是用岩井米制成的,赋予这种清酒浓郁的香气和良好的口感。

Enjoy Soba Day with cold soba noodles dipped in mentsuyu (which is also perfect for the hot Australian summer!) while sipping on a cup of chilled Eikun Kotosennen Junmai Ginjo!

用蘸着面汁的荞麦冷面(这也非常适合炎热的澳大利亚夏天!)享受荞麦面日,同时啜饮一杯冰镇的英勋纯米吟酿吧!
