Hinamatsuri (also known as Girl’s Day) is a Japanese tradition celebrated on March 3. Besides displaying a set of ornamental dolls, Girl’s Day is celebrated with traditional sweets and foods! Hamaguri Osuimono is a clear Japanese soup that is cooked with clams and dashi. We’ve added our Jumbo Udon Noodles Only for a full meal! While it is light in flavor, the savory flavor of clams and shrimps are present in the soup. Udon noodles pair well with the pleasant taste of the soup. Rape Blossoms are traditionally topped with the soup, but we have used the flowering head of Chinese Broccoli as it is accessible in the states.

- 1 tsp Konbu Dashi Powder
