A simple yet really delicious cold soba seasoned with homemade honey soy sesame dressing. Light and refreshing, that's how I describe the taste!
This is slightly different from the cold soba with dipping sauce (click here for recipe) that I preciously shared. This recipe is a lot easier to prepare because there's no need to cook the sauce. Just mix and toss! ;)
This is the Japanese noodle brand that I would recommend - Hakubaku Noodles, our all times favourite!
Ideal to pack for kids lunchbox/ bento:
|Cha Soba, seasoned with honey soy sesame dressing. |
Served with egg and unagi for my 7yo snack during school recess.

1. Cook the soba as directed on the package instruction. Reduce 1 minute cooking time. Meanwhile, prepare the dressing by mixing all the honey soy sesame dressing ingredients until well combined. Set aside.
2. When the cooking is done, transfer the soba noodle into a sieve, throw in some ice cubes and rinse under running water (filtered water) for 1 minute.
3. Drain. Toss in the honey soy dressing. Make sure the soba noodles are well coated. Garnish with spring onion, toasted sesame seeds and seaweed. Serve chill.
Note: Shake off the excess dressing if this is to be served later, else the soba noodles may turn soggy. Or if you're packing this for an older kid or grown up, pack the dressing separately, toss in right before serve.
