It is so humid in Japan today!!!! Summer is just around the corner after this rainy season;however, we don’t have rain at all even in rainy season. We have to be serious about global warming.
I often see an advertisement flag of hiyashi chuka outside of a ramen shop these days.
Hiyashi chūka (冷やし中華?, lit. “chilled Chinese”) is a Japanese dish consisting of chilled ramen noodles with various toppings served in the summer. Toppings are usually colorful cold ingredients and a tare sauce.
Popular toppings are strips of tamagoyaki (egg), carrot, cucumber, ginger, ham, and chicken. It may also contain barbecued pork. The tare sauce is usually made from water, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, sesame seeds.
The flag informs us “summer is coming.”
