A fusional take on summer cold noodles inspired by Taiwanese and Korean flavors. Spicy, cool, and refreshing, guaranteed to wake you right up on a hot summer’s day.
The word “Mala” (麻辣) translates in Chinese as “numbingly spicy.” That unique flavor and tingly mouthfeel comes from Sichuan peppercorns. It’s nearly irreplaceable. People in Taiwan love the flavor — it often appears in Mala hot pot (麻辣火鍋), soups, or poultry dishes (like Mouth-watering Chicken 口水雞). Mala hot pot (麻辣火鍋) is my personal favorite way to enjoy this spice.
