Cold Sesame Noodles

While Liang Pi was one of my go to lunches when I lived in Beijing, these cold sesame noodles are my riff on the authentic. Tossed in my sesame sauce these easy noodles make a great lunch (and leftovers)

  • Pan


Cold Sesame Noodles

  • 300 grams Noodles long and flat ones work best
  • 2 Eggs beaten
  • 2 Red Chili Peppers thinly sliced
  • 1 small Cucumber thin sheets made using a veggie peeler
  • 1/2 Onion chopped
  • 2 tbsp Asian Sesame Sauce homemade

Asian Sesame Sauce

  • 4 tbsp Tahini
  • 3 tbsp Mayonnaise. I know it sounds weird but trust me it adds a great creaminess to the sauce.
  • 1 tbsp Ponzu
  • 1 tsp Dark Soy Sauce
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Rice Wine Vinegar you can use apple cider vinegar as a substitute although it does change the flavor slightly.
  • 1 tsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 tsp Sesame Seeds. More or less adjust for preferred texture. You can also leave this ingredient out if you want the dressing to be 100% smooth.


  • Set a pan of boiling water with a little bit of salt. Add the noodles and let boil until soft. During this time you can make the Asian Sesame Sauce. Just whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Drain the noodles and leave them in the warm pan. Pour in the two beaten eggs and quickly toss/stir the pan until the eggs are cooked and coating all the noodles.
  • Add the Asian Sesame Sauce along with the chili and onion and cucumber sheets. Toss the noodles until everything is well combined and coated.
  • Move to a resealable container and place in the fridge for 20 minutes (or eat them hot).
