From the Test Kitchen

During the summer, ramen restaurants in Japan serve hiyashi chuka—cooled noodles served without a broth and paired with seasonal toppings. Here, we’re piling springy fresh noodles with a bevy of vegetables, including snappy green beans, marinated cucumber, and plump heritage globe tomatoes (which range in color from bright red to deep crimson). A quick soy and sesame sauce adds a bit of savory flavor when drizzled over the noodles—perfectly complementing rich soft-boiled eggs.
