This time of year,

sōmen noodles play a big part of this season.

And for the past few years, I’ve had with this mentsuya soup stock,

However, it’s hard to find this year.

I had thought maybe they stop selling already, since it doesn’t appear on the company website.

Then found some in a local countryside supermarket not far from from Ise.

I’m not that well acquainted with sōmen and mentsuya but everyone raves about them all— Miemen, sōmen or hiyamugi, and straight tsuyu soup. I’m glad I could get some this year too.
