Noodlemania Week #5-Domino Soba

Many of you who visit the design blogs fondly remember the dearly-departed Domino magazine. I was quite infatuated with the first issue I got in the mail and an amazing looking soba recipe that was featured. It was touted as a cleansing respite from the indulgences of the holiday season. After the delicious yet insane festivities from our SuperBowl fry-fest I was looking for some delicious penance.

Bless me father for I have eaten too many fried pickles.


We all make mistakes my child. Please eat a bowl of soba and medidate on your mistakes.

I wanted so badly for this to be a triumph but my bowl of soba came out... mediocre. I am not sure if the ramen restaurant near my house has elevated my taste for japanese soup or if it was the fact that I forgot a key ingredient for creating the broth (I didn't have mushroom stems because I accidentally bought caps only) but I found it to be only so-so. That is not to say that I didn't squirt it silly sriracha and eat it all over the course of the day happy as a clam. Please. I may be a sinner but I don't waste food and quite frankly there are very few things that hot sauce can't save.

Can I get an amen?
