I like Japanese cold noodles, and I think it is a perfect fit for the hot weather here in Singapore. The first time I remember eating it was when my host family in Japan prepared it for lunch. Fishing out the noodles out of a bowl of ice water, swirling it around in the light soy sauce and then slurping down each cool strand. Oishi! Delish! Strange that we do not have a local version of cold noodles.
Today, I had a very nice serving of cold soba with beef. The dish itself was gigantic, I reckon at least 30 cm in diameter. The soba sits in a sukiyaki sesame sauce which is another something I love. The nutty frangrance goes so well with the noodles. What a treat. Had this at Waraku at Central.
