Authentic Taiwanese cold sesame noodles, ready in 10 minutes! Cool and refreshing, perfect on a hot summer’s day.
Cold Noodles (Liang Mian 涼麵) is a traditional Taiwanese dish that consists of chilled noodles tossed in a tangy, nutty sesame sauce. The dish might have been invented to combat the dreadfully scorching summers in Taiwan — safe to say it successfully cools me down every time. One spot in Taipei called 劉媽媽涼麵 (Liu Mama Noodle) is a local favorite. The spot is also a personal favorite, so I tried to make mine as close to theirs as possible.
