Guys, it's time to practice your chopstick skills if you plan to eat at this restaurant which serves its noodles flowing down a bamboo chute
Flowing Japanese bamboo noodles, also called nagashi somen, is a cold noodle dish that's typically served in Japan during the hot, sweltering summer time
Nagashi comes from the verb nagasu, which means to flow, while somen refers to white noodles made from wheat flour.
Luckily, you don't have to fly all the way to Japan to try this
All you need to do is pay a visit to Samira by Asian Terrace to have a unique nagashi somen experience, right here in Kuala Lumpur (KL)!
Located in Sentul West, this restaurant is surrounded by lush greenery, away from the hustle and bustle of the city to give you a serene dining experience
Their bamboo chutes are located outdoors, so besides having fun trying to catch your noodles in the fresh air, you'll also get to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Here's how to enjoy nagasi somen:
Firstly, catch the somen with your chopsticks
Next, dip it into shoyu to get that savoury, umami flavour
Lastly, top it off with spring onions, sesame seeds, and mashed ginger!
If you are worried about it being unhygienic, fret not because there is a strict hygiene policy that needs to be followed
Diners are advised to take their own somen only from their own side, and no cross-picking is allowed.
