We Tried It!
First, I tried drinking just the hiyajiru. It seems the fish used in the soup was sardines. The taste of the fish, soup, and the flavor of miso were all working together. When added along with firm tofu, crispy cucumbers, and refreshing shiso, It is very delicious. It is an easy dish to eat during the hot summer.
I also tried it with barley rice! As it mentions on the description of the product, I tried eating it without thinking too much about how I looked to others. Even when you do not have an appetite in the summer, you will definitely want to eat more and more of this. It is a predicted that I want to eat again soon.
