Hiyashi Ramen

Hiyashi Ramen

Hiyashi means “chilled,” and unlike the steaming hot bowls of its common cousin, hiyashi ramen consists of chilled noodles in a cold soup. Sometimes you’ll even find ice cubes together with the other ingredients. Hiyashi ramen was invented in Yamagata City in 1952 by a ramen chef whose customers wanted a cold ramen dish to enjoy during Yamagata’s hot summers, much in the same way that soba noodles can be enjoyed hot or chilled. Hiyashi ramen is usually made with a shoyu (soy sauce) based soup.
