Wipe the shiitake mushrooms with a wet paper towel. Cut off the stems and cut each cap into 4 pieces. Cut off the roots of the shimeji mushrooms.
Pour the water into a pan. Bring to a boil and add the dried thin white noodles (dried sōmen). Boil for 2 minutes, or follow the cooking instructions on the bag.
Add a cup of cold water to the pan if the water starts to boil over. After boiling, drain the noodles in a colander and quickly run cold water over them.
Because too much starch and salt on the noodles can make them taste slimy, wash them with your hands under cold running water to remove any extra starch.
Heat the salad oil in a frying pan and saute the mushrooms on medium heat. Add the noodles and sear.
Add the salt and soy sauce. Saute and stir for a couple of minutes.
Because the thin white noodles are so thin, the soy sauce soaks into them very well and makes this dish very delicious.
