cha soba (そば or 蕎麦) - green tea soba

my version -- with ramen eggs (ajitsuke tamago), red miso broth, fish cake, nori, scallions, and corn...

“cha soba” is a thin Japanese soba noodle infused with green tea or “ocha” or “cha” for short. It is made of buckwheat flour or “soba-ko,” wheat flour or “komugi-ko,” and the addition of green tea.
"The key to ramen eggs (known in Japanese as ajitsuke tamago 味付け卵) is that they aren’t just flavoured by their marinade. The salty and sweet marinade actually acts as a cure to firm the whites and yolks, and give the yolks a savoury and jammy taste and consistency, which is a much better texture for ramen. Two days curing is about right for curing ramen eggs, but you can go more or less depending on the levels of salt and sugar in the liquid." -- Adam Liaw
