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.

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?
I think you can make the cold version just fine. Just chill it.
Thank you Bee for the nice recipe.
This is one of my favorite noodle dishes. Delicious!
