This somen noodle dish is very flavoursome. Between the red sweet chili sauce, sesame seeds and black rice vinegar, these noodles hit all the flavour notes: sweet, salty, tangy and nutty!
Somen noodles are thin wheat noodles, they are as thin as vermicelli but the taste is a lot more delicate.
A very healthy and delicious noodle dish.
