Hi there foodie friends! When it comes to food, we gotta admit that we’re constantly on the hunt for something novel right? From dining in the sky to gastronomic food experiences, there’s just something about unique dining that has us hooked. If you’re like us and quirky dining experiences are your thing, then good news! Because we just found the very first spot that serves Nagashi Somen in KL, Malaysia!
A Truly Japanese ‘Nagashi Somen’ Experience In KL
Wait, Nagashi Somen? What is that? Well, don’t worry because we’re here to give you guys some background info. Before that, if you’ve ever been to Japan, you’re probably already familiar with Nagashi Somen so you can feel free to skip this entire part. But, if you need more info, then we got your back.
Essentially, “Nagashi” comes from the verb “nagasu” (流す) which literally means “to flow” and “Somen” refers to thin, white noodles made from wheat flour. Combining these two words and you get the general meaning of eating flowing wheat noodles. Nagashi Somen is a common Japanese cuisine whereby we can eat noodles flowing along a bamboo stick with our chopsticks.
That’s the fun of it because you’re supposed to catch the noodles on time before it flows away! Once you catch the flowing noodles with your chopsticks, just dip them into the shoyu topped with spring onion, sesame seed and mashed ginger. If you have quick hands and this is your thing, then you’ll be on your feet knowing that you can now experience this in Malaysia! It’s available at Samira by Asian Terrace located in Sentul West, Kuala Lumpur.
According to a Twitter netizen, @wanmuaaz, the entire Nagashi Somen experience is really fun! Also, if you fear this eating experience is unhygienic, then you’ll be relieved to know that there’s quite a strict hygiene policy here. This is because there will be sessions (25 minutes each) allocated for customers and no cross-picking is allowed here. For each session, you’ll get 5-7 turns of Somen per person so no fear of missing out here!

So there you have it, a one-of-a-kind Japanese Nagashi Somen experience all the way right here in KL, Malaysia. It already sounds so fun we can’t wait to experience it. What are you waiting for?
