  1. I loved these. My fiancee didn't particularly care for them at all. He really does have the more discriminating palate, though if I could have, i would have voted this recipe at least a three-and-a-half. The flavor of the sauce, in my opinion, was perfectly biting and very complementary to the chosen Mandarin-Style Steak, Asian Slaw, and Spicy Cucumbers. So, if you enjoy the starchy-side of life, and a bit of spice as well: these noodles will tantalize! If you are not a fan of starch, and, well, have a more discriminating palate than I, you may not enjoy these quite as much. Soba noodles, apparently, are a matter of choice.
  2. I made these again this weekend and added a little tahini paste and it was fabulous! I love cold sesame noodles and I make these over and over! What a great summer dish
  3. I just made this recipe for diner and neither hubby or I liked it. It is certainly not the fault of the recipe, though, which was simple to prepare - I think we just don't like soba noodles! I'm going to try this one again with a lo mein noodle or a glass noodle and see what I get!
  4. I made these last night to go with our chicken. We all loved them except for DD#1, she just didn't care for them. I loved the versitility of them. I want to try to add broccoli or snow peas next time. I will make again, (DD is going to college next so I will wait until then. Thank you so much for this recipe most of us loved.
  5. We had this a bit less spicy with leftover chicken and added the Tahini (2 Tbs). It was a hit with the kids!


  1. This recipe was SO quick and easy to make! My husband and I both enjoyed the satisfied our craving for Asian food without us having to go out to a restaurant. I have already made this recipe multiple times and will be making it many more. The noodle/sauce mixture keeps well in the fridge overnight--just need to sprinkle green onions and toasted sesame seeds on top the next day and you have a delicious, quick lunch. I didn't have chili oil, so I just added ~1/2 tsp of chili pepper flakes instead.
  2. I used buckwheat soba noodles and went by the recipe, save I used chilie bean sauce in place of the chili oil. Quick, easy, healthy, the kids loved them, what else could you ask for.


i like to cook and i love to bake, and i love most of all to eat.
