    ladytan's Note:

    I like this recipe because it is very easy to make and that there are many different toppings. I'm originally from Hawaii so I've tasted the Japanese Somen Salad. But since I've moved to Hainan, China, I've come to like Hainan version using the same kind of noodles. The Japanese Somen Salad version I got from my mother and the Hainan Noodles I got from observing street cooks here in Hainan.
