Named for a former boss of Takasaki's, this dish is a showstopper. Recruit guests to help in the final stages of making the pasta. The refrigerated dough will be green; however, once it's cooked, it comes out of the water a vibrant orange.
4     tablespoons lobster roe

4     teaspoons chives
4    teaspoons shallots

With a small amount of the flour on a lightly floured surface, create a well and place lobster roe in the middle; mash to liquefy. Add egg yolks and mix well. Then slowly incorporate flour until a dough is formed and refrigerate for one hour. Use a rolling pin or pasta machine to roll the dough into thin sheets and cut into noodles.

Place in boiling water for four minutes.  Remove and toss with herbs and olive oil. 

TO COOK THE LOBSTER: 
Steam for 8 to 10 minutes.
