    This is my mother’s signature dish!!!! I love your take on it and per usual, your photos are beautiful. I haven’t been able to eat Korean food from home in a while so this just makes me rave it even more. Love it!!

    Nova Scotia is basically an armpit right now. And as I lay here, wishing for a break in the humidity, I find myself wondering: why didn’t my Korean roommate ever make me cold noodles when we were suffering through the heat of Toronto summers? So now I’m going to have to interweb yell at her…

    With your cooking skills (among many other qualities), I’d say B2 TRULY married well. I love the balance of tastes and textures in this humble, little dish of noodles.

    It’s totally autumnal here in London at the moment + I don’t think it’s stopped raining for days but this looks so delicious that I’ll happily put a jumper on and dive into a bowlful!

    A “Fussy Gussy” ha I love it! I really don’t want summer to end, but the heat makes me not want to go outside sometimes. There is a place here in ATL that makes a dish similar to this and it is outstanding. I can’t wait to try this.

    Love it! I have been prematurely mourning the end of summer as well, we have had so many days of extreme heat.. followed closely by chilly rain. I do absolutely love cold noodles on a hot day, though! I have never had a soup such as this with the Asian pears, the crispness of them must be delicious with chewy noodles!

    I too steal all my husbands food when we’re eating out. Luckily for me he says doesn’t mind. It’s cooling down here, but if we get another heat wave I’ll have to try these better-than-air-conditioning noodles.

    Stretchy, stubborn noodles that require scissors to eat sound so oddly appealing! Korean food is a total mystery to me but this dish is showstoppingly gorgeous, combined with the heat of Austin, TX (that will last into November) I think I have a new dinner goal for this weekend! XO

    Oh man, I just had Korean take out last night and now I want to make this! I think it’s safe to say I’m on a kick right now LOL 😉 This sounds just perfect for the end of summer, Cynthia (you know, I’m a BIG fan of summer soup!)

    PS: I love the image of you kicking off the sheets and then stealing them back, mostly because I do the same exact thing. We sheets thieves have to stick together 😉 xx

    I am so so sad inside that summer is so close to wnding. I will slightly complain about the heat but I do love it so much more than layering and loooking like a puffy balloon. Please don’t go summertime!!
    I was scrolling instagram looking foe dinner inspiration and whaddya know, you won!! I haven’t grocery shopped for 2 weeks so I’m surviving on pantry staples, garden stuff and ears of corn. I’m just gonna throw stuff together today based on what I have but soon I shall attempt this recipe in the way you intended. Love it all.

    Hehehehehe, he did marry so well, you’re adorable!! And I love that you think sunscreen smells like happiness! These cold noodles are totally calling my name. YES YES YES to cold noodles in the summer. Also, YES to kicking off then stealing back covers. High five to that.

    Thank you for always inspiring me to make new dishes. Plus, I love noodle ANYTHING! Also, I always ask my husband what he is ordering because I know if he gets something better I will get jealous and steel it, lol. It’s kind of just assumed that if he orders fries, then I get some, hehe. B2 def. married well =)

    Once again, how did you know I love mulnaengmyeon even though it ain’t about me??! This is seriously one of the BEST dishes in the middle of summer. I find it funny that you’re fussy gussy because I can’t stand heat either~so I’m actually praying for fall to come sooner because it always delays here in socal, although really? It’s not truthful fall like you guys get :( Great job with this post and recipe, Cynthia! You never cease to amaze me.

    Hahah, I love this post, Cynthia! Though personally, I can’t WAIT for summer to end. Of course, I lived in SoCal for nearly 18 years, and it’s summer year-round there (well, not *technically*). The change of seasons I’ll be experiencing this year has me so excited! We’ll see how long that last for, though…
    Gorgeous photos! <3 xo

    Both my husband and I love Korean cold noodles, so we’ll definitely try this at home. I’m wondering is there a special requirement for rice vinegar. The cold noodles I had in the restaurant is so refreshing and had a fruity aroma. I always thought they also blend in cider vinegar.
    Beautiful picture as always! Pinning and sharing of course :)

    This heat is killing me too!! I miss my (normally) foggy Bay Area. What a delicious way to keep cool! All those flavors and textures look pretty magical, indeed :)

    This reminds me of a dish I had at a little Japanese place a few weeks ago when it was ridiculously hot. Like a ramen, but the dashi broth was frozen and shaved like granita! So cold and deliciously refreshing on a hot day! Now it’s gloomy and rainy so I’m craving this, but hot! Basically ramen. I’m craving ramen. I’m always craving ramen.

    I get so sad when summer ends and fall starts. Summer is my favorite month despite the humidity and the mosquitos! lol. And I love mul naengmyeon! I always had it – any season – as a child in Korea and my mother used to tell me that her mom (my grandmother) would’ve loved to see me eat it as well as she used to make delicious pyongyang nengmyun. :) I love hearing stories like that. I love old family stories that are associated with food – thanks for making me remember!

say hello!
