I bought these a long time ago and never did use them. Not sure if they get old or stale...

Re: What kind of noodles are these??

The large blue label is countryside-hiyamugi(*). Hiyamugi are a thicker version of somen wheat noodles, often eaten in cold preparations. Do a search for Somen and you'll find lots of recipes. They're usually boiled and then rinsed either with cold or hot water to wash off any slimyness. I've kept such noodles for quite a long time and never noticed a problem when I've cooked them.

(*)Please forgive any poor translations.

What Sandy said, although personally I never rinse hiyamugi in hot water, just cold (and heat it through if it's served in hot soup). You can treat it just like soba basically - look up the soba posts on Just Hungry for ideas.

Thank you! I thought that is what it was... but I wanted to make sure ;) Thanks so much!
In your opinion, what is the best, and tastiest way to serve it? I want to start slowly practicing bentos for myself and my hubby so that when our son starts school I can make cute lunches for him :)

I generally like cold soba or somen or hiyamugi more than hot, so if you follow the basics for cold soba it should be pretty good. Of course it is better suited for hot weather!
