Soba Noodles with Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce

Since the weather in the Bay Area has been so nice the last few weeks, I was in the mood for some saucy noodles again. So again, I went to the web to search for some recipes that I can share with you all and I think I found something all noodle lovers would love! Soba noodles with Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce. I mean just look at the picture above! It looks delicious!

I found this recipe from simplyreem.  This blogger found this recipe from a cookbook by David Chang called “Momofuku”. David Chang is an internationally known Chef that has opened several restaurants in New York. His cookbook, Momofuku, is a book that has many of his favorite dishes in his restaurants. They consist of mostly Asian cuisine and his famous pork buns.

After doing research on this book, I actually ordered it on Amazon. It has many noodles dishes in it so I will definitely be doing posts on these recipes as I make them in the future.

The recipe below is from Momofuku, but the blogger modified it a bit to make it a little sweeter and little spicier.


  • Soba noodles – 1 9oz packet
  • Salt and Pepper as per taste
  • Sesame seeds – 2 Tbsp lightly toasted
  • Cucumber thinly julienne optional
  • Lime wedges optional

Sauce Ingredients:

  • Scallions – 1 ½ cup finely chopped
  • Ginger – 2 Tbsp minced
  • Cilantro – ¼ cup chopped

  • Chili oil – 2 tsp
  • Soy sauce – 1Tbsp
  • Rice wine vinegar – 2 Tbsp
  • Honey – 2 Tbsp
  • Salt – 1 tsp, as soy sauce is salty too so be careful with the salt

  1. Mix all the ingredients for Sweet Ginger Scallion sauce in the bowl, check for the seasoning. Keep it aside for 10 -15 minutes for the flavors to develop.
