Hiyashi chuka is a traditional summertime noodle dish from Japan that features chilled ramen noodles tossed with a delectably light, sweet, and tangy sauce—the perfect companion to fresh summer produce and rich soft-boiled eggs. We’re topping it all off with a garnish of furikake, which is a vibrant blend that highlights dried seaweed, sesame seeds, and chile flakes.
