  • Cooking pot
  • Tensuki


  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 3 ounces kanten jelly (or agar if you can't find it)

Tokoroten kanto sauce

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/4 spring onion minced
  • 1 tsp mustard


  • Boil the water and then add 1 tablespoon of vinegar.
  • Next, you need to add the kanten jelly or agar-agar, and then stir well. You can cook it for 2 minutes.
  • Remove it from the stove and allow it to cool. You can put it into a jar, and then place it in a fridge for around 2 hours. This mixture will become a jelly as it cools.
  • Now, you'll need to use the tensuki to make the noodles. If you don’t have the tool, then you shouldn’t worry, as you can cut the jelly into cubes.
  • To make the sauce, you need to mix the ingredients in a separate bowl.
  • Lastly, serve the noodles and then dip them into the sauce, or just mix the sauce with the noodles.
