Nagoya Kishimen (Aug 8)
It was a hot afternoon. I used 18kippu to go to Nagoya. I was going to meet mmulibra for the 1st time, after we have known each other for quite a few months through our blogs. Heee... yap yap, another blogger's meet.
I still remember I made such a comment about his blog... "The pictures melt my heart." ^_^
Coincidencely, he was my senior in UKM. Just that we never met before, as he went out of UKM, I went in. So you see... how fate likes to play on people.
Anyway, this wagamama fish fish made a request when he asked me if I wanna have a dinner together.
OF COURSE!! I want KISHIMEN... Nagoya Kishimen.
I told him in my cmail.
Little did I know he actually have no idea that kishimen in Nagoya is famous.
We finally met each other. By his description...
"I am wearing a RED shirt"
So hor~ I kept looking for a RED shirt guy. NONE.
Finally, I saw one guy with SLIGHT REDDISH ORANGE T-shirt. A TALL Guy. When I looked at his face, I'm very sure it is him, as I've seen his vague picture in his blog.
*Ok, once again I am confirmed guys don't have a sense when trying to describe a colour* -_-"
Don't believe me... give them Deep Green, Neon Green, Light Green, Emerald Green... They will give you one single answer... "GREEN".
Heee... I smiled at him. He smiled at me. Voila!
"I've asked my friend about the Kishimen, after you mailed me you wanna try it." He said.
-_-" Oops... giving a friend a task again... blame to my urge for good food. Gomenne~
^_^ Thank you for taking all the trouble.
So, we ended in Kishimen no Yoshida... a shop in the Nagoya station area that only specialized in KISHIMEN. Woo hoo~~~ I was excited.
We pondered at the menu for quite some time. Finally...
mmulibra had a bowl of Hot Miso Tempura Kishimen.
Nagoya Miso is a very unique miso. Strong taste... Somehow, it is famous in Nagoya for making different kind of soup noodles with this miso. It is a very thick type of soup, more like a gravy. I has a sip on it... Very UNIQUE! It would take some time for a person to get used to it I would say.
Anyway, I challenged this miso soup again next time... with another famous food in Nagoya, which I'll post in later day. ^_^
fish fish chose a bowl of Cold Sesame Vinegar Kishimen.
I love mine. It was a great taste.
The kishimen is freshly made every morning, with only 3 ingredients : High quality wheat flour, salt and water.
The kishimen was much thicker than usual machine-made kishimen. It was very chewy. Match perfectly with the original home-made sesame vinegar sauce that have been let matured for 1 month.
Oh yes... I deeply enjoyed the whole bowl till the last slurp. It was a great selection for a hot summer day.
Guess what? It was a treat from mmulibra. :P I am spoilt.
Hohoho~~~ the two full stomachs... Walking slowly back to mmulibra's room. Yap, I was staying a night at his place....
with... another 2 Malaysians which joined us later that night.
For what?? ;)
The answer will be revealed in the next post.
