つけ麺 tsukemen, that’s noodles unseasoned (often chilled) served with a tsuyu (dipping soup). As that’s much lighter than noodles served in the soup, it’s a common Summer dish.

Chuka soba or ramen (Chinese noodles). I buy them fresh and cooked, but they need a refreshing. I pass them 1 minute in boiling water, then refresh in ice water. And serve. That changes totally the texture.

Fresh traditional style miso. I’ve used it for the onion miso tsuyu

It’s very simple. I cut 1/2 onion, grated 1/4, added very little water and cooked till onions changed of color, added the miso and iced water to refresh.

Garnishing items : goya (sliced bitter squash), mitsuba leaves, cut negi leeks and abura-age (fried tofu). It’s Kyoto style abura-age, delicious just like that.
