Summertime is the best time to enjoy cold noodles, and how cool is it when the person showing you how to make a great Cucumber Cold Noodles dish is none other than SuperstarKim Hyun Joong! We are so lucky that Happy Together, a popular Korean variety show, had a Handsome Guy at the Late Night Cafe special, and it's subtitled in English.

Since it is fully subtitled in English, you can certainly watch the entire show. But for those of you who wish to jump to the delicious segment of Kim Hyun Joong making cucumber cold noodles, simply skip to 01:12:00.

There are different ways to make cucumber cold noodles. Kim's version uses instant noodles.

Here's the recipe thanks to this blogger.

cucumber broth*
mixed instant noodles
sliced cucumbers
garlic (crushed)
chili peppers
sesame seeds

add more sauce if you like spicy food


Prepare cucumber broth*: just put cucumbers in water and let it sit for 10 minutes, remove the cucumbers afterwards.

Add salt, vinegar, sugar, crushed garlic to the soup.

Add the mixed noodles sauce too. Mix. Add a cut up chili pepper.

Add new cucumbers. Put in a good amount of ice.

Put the mixed instant noodles in the cucumber soup.

Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.


Of course when I make the noodles, my one big missing ingredient will be the cool Kim Hyun Joong.
