The noodles taste like weak wheat with very slight hint of buckwheat. After cooking two packs of the soba, I drank "sobayu", the water in which the soba was cooked, and that was weak and tasteless. Good soba makes good sobayu. Good soba restaurants in Japan serve sobayu. The reviewer "fluffy" hasn't mentioned sobayu at all despite being Japanese.
"Authentic Japanese buckwheat noodles made with 70% of wheat and 30% of buckwheat"...(sigh). Authentic soba should be made with 20% of wheat and 80% of buckwheat, and we call it "ni-hachi soba". Recently, another type of soba called "juwari soba", which is made with 100% of buckwheat, is becoming popular in Japan. That means that many of Japanese prefer strong taste and flavor of buckwheat, and so they may find Hakubaku soba quite disappointed.
The only thing I like about Hakubaku soba is, as many of reviewers here have pointed out, the price. If you want to save money, Hakubaku soba can be a big help.
Yet if you want to enjoy real taste of soba, you should get one made with 80-100% of buckwheat. Surely you shouldn't call noodles made with 70% of *wheat* "soba".
This is just to warn you guys to check the expiration date on the Box to make sure it's not crossed out and hidden like it was in my case.
The Noodles themselves cook in about five minutes of boiling water And taste fine. Be aware that this is not gluten-free, but is a mix of buckwheat and regular gluten wheat. Who knows what percentage of it is actually buckwheat.
That said, these noodles have a pleasant texture but are missing the nice soba flavor. They're good for a hot soup, but not so good for dipping (since they taste like nothing.) Not bad just not what I was looking for.
BTW, Eden brands sells a 100% buckwheat noodle for something like $14/lb. Yikes.
absorbs sauce and spices VERY well.
I love this noodle.
Since I am Japanese, I have eaten many kinds of sobas in my life.
So, I know the real Japanese Soba taste. It remains firmness and soba flavor after
boiling it. It is made in Australia, but the quality is guaranteed, and I can highly recommend it.
Pricewise is also very reasonable. Please enjoy real Japanese taste!

It's hard to find good soba at the local supermarket. Hakubaku is mighty fine, and no more expensive than the dusty stuff from the local shelves. Read morePublished 26 days ago by Ypres
