This easy noodle dish comes together in no time, and yet it showcases a complex medley of flavors that embodies an exotic sophistication. With fresh Yellowfin tuna stir fried with caramelized garlic and ginger and a sweet and spicy sauce made from tianmianjiang (sweet bean sauce), it's served over a bed of slippery al-dente noodles that are redolent of toasted sesame. Topped with crisp julienned cucumbers and fragrant cilantro, each bite features a new combination of textures, temperatures and tastes.
