1) You can just dip the noodles into the dipping sauce.
2) Second type whereby you can put a little bit wasabi on top of the noodles and dip together into the sauce.(I prefer this steps).
3) Or you may try the 3rd types. Pour the raw quail egg into the sauce and mix together the chopped scallions. Just take a few strands of noodles and dip them into the sauce before eating them while making a slurping sound. The slurping enhances the flavors. So yummy!
