These flat sheets are made from a similar rice flour dough, which is pressed between bamboo mats to get flattened. The mats leave a distinct basket weave impression on the paper. When dipped in lukewarm water to rehydrate, they turn soft, sticky, and almost clear. They dry in seconds, developing a tacky, pliable skin that adheres well to itself. How they’re used: Rehydrated circular sheets are used to wrap Vietnamese summer rolls. Square and triangular sheets are often wrapped around meat for grilling.AED21.00 Inc VATAED21.00 Inc VAT
Sōmen are usually served cold with a light flavored dipping sauce or tsuyu. The tsuyu is usually a katsuobushi-based sauce that can be flavored with Japanese bunching onion, ginger, or myoga. In the summer, sōmen chilled with ice is a popular meal to help stay cool.
Sōmen served in hot soup is usually called nyūmen and eaten in the winter, much as soba or udon are.
Some restaurants offer nagashi-sōmen (流しそうめん flowing noodles) in the summer. The noodles are placed in a long flume of bamboo across the length of the restaurant. The flume carries clear, ice-cold water. As the sōmen pass by, diners pluck them out with their chopsticks and dip them in tsuyu. Catching the noodles requires a fair amount of dexterity, but the noodles that are not caught by the time they get to the end usually are not eaten, so diners are pressured to catch as much as they can. A few luxury establishments put their sōmen in real streams so that diners can enjoy their meal in a beautiful garden setting. Machines have been designed to simulate this experience at home.
