Sobayu at a soba restaurant

Hello, everyone! I had zaru-soba (my favorite Japanese buckwheat noodle) for a lunch on the trip to Gifu. It was handmade noodles, and I liked it. Some soba restaurants serves sobayu with zaru-soba. Sobayu is hot water that the noodles were boiled in, and is murky white. After you eat soba, you enjoy sobayu. You add sobayu into soy based sauce for soba, and enjoy like soup or tea. The rate of sobayu and sauce make a difference on the taste. I think people have their own recipe. I like a lot of sobayu with a little sauce, so that you can enjoy soba flavor of yobayu. By the way, the tea served at the restaurant was sencha with tall thick younomi cup. Have a nice day!
