Interesting! I've not seen those noodles before! Does the squid ink add taste or is it more for the color?
It's mainly for the taste. Squid ink has a strong seafood taste which gives every dish a characteristic taste. That's why squid ink is used for many dishes such as pasta with ink, black rice, squids in its ink or hake (pictured below).
Really, really well documented. Beautiful dish - truely haute cuisine!
