Cold 'Chinese' noodles great to beat the heat / JAPANESE HOME COOKING

Bookmark and Share
A DISH OF hiyashi-chuka, cold "Chinese" noodles, is a good choice for lunch on a scorching day. "Partly due to the quality of water, chilled noodles are rarely seen in China. I would say it is a Chinese dish born in Japan," says Tomoshige Ichikawa, owner and chef of a Chinese restaurant.
The key is cooking the noodles thoroughly and cooling them quickly. Choose toppings to taste. Myoga, shiso or cooked shiitake slices will add zest. Give the sauce a twist by adding sesame paste or chili oil.

Aug 14Playful prankster's unhibited prancing provokes prudish front-desk staffer(Tokyo Reporter)
In her latest weekly installment in Nikkan Gendai (Aug. 12) the pseudonymous Shoko Harano, a divorcee who has spent three years working at the front desk of a Tokyo love hotel, relates a wacky incident in which she was involved. Such hotels do not have restaurants on their premises; but as sexual activity tends to give some people a ravenous appetite, it's common for customers to phone out for food. So as part of her duties, Harano is required to deliver snacks or meals. (Payment for food is added onto the room bill and usually made at checkout. The hotel then settles with the restaurant when their delivery staff comes to collect the dishes.) This time, when Harano buzzed the room, a grinning young woman, about age 20, swung the door open. She was naked as a jaybird but shyly used both hands to conceal her secondary sexual characteristics.
