Guksu (soy milk noodle soup)

Soups are considered a main dish in Korean cuisine, rather than a starter. This chilled noodle soup, garnished with cucumber and sliced tomatoes, is thick and creamy with a very mild flavor, but you can also punch up the taste with a bit of kimchi. When the noodles are made by hand, it’s even better.
