Both cold salad offerings sit atop a bed of chilled lo-mein noodles with lettuce, red cabbage, shredded carrots, tomatoes, corn and scallions, and come with a side of creamy Thai Sweet Chili Dressing, all prepared by Genji chefs at each location. The Crushed Edamame Tofu Cold Noodle Salad features a delightfully light combination of edamame, tofu, tahini and a "usukuchi" soy sauce blend, and the Spicy Blue Crab salad is tossed with Genji's signature Hot Mayo sauce.
"When it's hot outside, nothing is more refreshing than a cold noodle salad," says Genji’s Corporate Executive Chef Takao Iinuma, protégé of Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. "Prepared in the classic hiyashi-chuka style, these chilled noodle salads are the perfect antidote to the late- summer heat."
