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 (and the accompanying photos).
When I told her to fill in for me and guest post on Rasa Malaysia while I am traveling overseas, I suggested to turn her famous ginger soy soba noodles into a party food fit for holiday parties, and that the serving is on a soup spoon. She delivered and here is her gorgeous photography with the simple yet delicious ginger soy soba noodles.
If you don’t have many soup spoons to serve at your party, you can always make a big batch of the noodles so your guests can help themselves. You can also serve the noodles in small appetizer bowls so the presentation of the ginger soy noodle looks enticing to the eyes as well as to the taste buds.
This is the last recipe before the holidays. I hope you have enjoyed the many cookie recipes and party food recipes on Rasa Malaysia in the past few weeks.
Happy holidays to you all and have a wonderful and safe celebration!
