We love fresh ramen. The springy, tender noodles and endless array of toppings make Japanese soups delicious and exciting. But when the weather is warm, we don’t always want a hot meal. That’s why we’re pleased to bring you our recipe for hiyashi chuka, a cool, brothless ramen dish traditionally served in summertime. You’ll top it with fresh tomatoes, corn, cool cucumbers and one of our signature summer spice blends.
