Hiyashi Cold Ramen / Saimin – One of my first jobs was at the first ramen shop in Honolulu. Today there are numerous popular ramen shops throughout the island. I had never heard of or seen “cold” ramen, but thought what an ingenious dish made specifically for the weather in Hawaii.

Only to find out later from one of the chefs (who spoke no English) that it was a very popular summer time dish in Japan. For a change of pace; serve with your favorite dashi dipping sauce.
