My friend Simply Reem is famous for her ginger soy soba noodle. Her soba noodles with sweet ginger scallion sauce is one of the most pinned noodle pictures on Pinterest, and that says a lot about the recipe.

When I told her to fill in for me and guest post on Rasa Malaysia while I am traveling overseas, I suggested to share her famous ginger soy soba noodles with Rasa Malaysia readers and she happily accepted it.

This amazing tasting noodles are so easy to make, healthy, and takes only 15 minutes to make. The only thing you need to cook is the soba noodles, which takes about 10 minutes in hot boiling water. The rest is about tossing the noodles with the sauce. I love the sweet ginger sauce with soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil and honey as the key ingredients. The noodles are savory, with a tint of sweetness and the gingery nuance in every bite. So delicious!

This is a perfect dish to serve the entire family.

    Hi!
    I have been reading your blog and using your recipes for sometime and I find your recipes wonderful! Unfortunately, where I live its really quite expensive to buy many asian products. Do you know if I can replace chilli oil and rice wine vinegar with something else?

    H, I want to make this as an appetizer for Christmas Day, and I was wondering if there was suppose to be soy sauce added to this recipe? Do you have a good replacement for chili oil, for example could I use red pepper flakes? How much salt and pepper do you recomemd? I hope you can get back to me soon!

    • Jazzmin,
      Yes you need to add 2 teaspoon of soy sauce in the sauce ingredients. Sorry for the missing ingredient. I have requested Bee to add it in the recipe
      If you want to replace chili oil with red pepper flakes, you can do that, as for salt n pepper you can do that as per your taste. Go little light on salt as soy sauce will add saltiness to the dish.

    Hi Bee, Is there any way you could publish a recipe of the Indonesian Kering Kentang (friend potatoes). I had some in a friend’s house & absolutely loved it. P-L-E-A-S-E. Thank You!!!

    Hi, again I just had one more question, how do you measured 2 oz of soba noodles, I don’t have a scale to weigh it. How would you measure this amount.

  5. Hi Bee,

    I like Zaru Soba, the cold version. It is popular in the Japanese restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. Is it advisable if I make it the “cold version’ of your recipe?
