optional - for topping

Steps

2. Add sesame oil and white sesame seeds into the sauce. Top with sliced green onions to finish the dipping sauce.

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried out this new type of noodles the other day. They were so chewy and tasty! I was inspired to make tsukemen with them, hence this recipe.
