Hiyashi chuka is a traditional summertime noodle dish from Japan. Most ramen is served hot in brothy soups. But, in summer, sometimes we want something a little more temperate. Hiyashi chuka uses the same delicious ramen noodles, but swaps out the steamy broth for a cool, sweet, vinegary sauce. It’s incredibly flavorful—the perfect companion to summer produce, authentic spices and velvety, soft-boiled eggs. Chill out, chefs!
