Hiyashi chuka

Hiyashi Chuka bento style.

In all of my seven trips to Japan I have not once experienced a Japanese Summer! I must say, I do love winter but I thought the Jetstar sale was a good opportunity to experience another side of Tokyo AND I'm really looking forward to having a summer specialty Hiyashi chuka  when I go to Tokyo next month!

Hiyashi Chuka is a popular cold ramen dish topped with various ingredients such as ham, tomato, cucumber and egg and served with a refreshing sweet soy, ginger or sesame sauce.
