五色涼拌麺 (元祖冷やし中華 ) / Gomoku Hiyashi Soba (Ganso Hiyashi Chūka) / Yōsukō Saikan - Jimbōchō, Tokyo

The original Hiyashi Chūka, a chilled ramen dish with strong Chinese influence and a history dating back 100 years. Yōsukō Saikan is a Chinese restaurant in central Tokyo, first opened in 1906 by master Shū-san, an immigrant from Shanghai. Originally located in Nishi-Kanda, the restaurant moved to its existing location in nearby Jimbōchō around 1930, a larger space with a seating capacity of 170. In 1933, Shū-san's son (who had taken over operations by then) first served the now legendary Hiyashi Chūka dish. It took two years of perfecting before it was ready to put on the menu. The tare is made sweet and sour using sugar, vinegar, shoyu and chicken dashi. The various toppings represent the four seasons of Japan, and are placed in a way to look like Mt. Fuji, which can sometimes be seen from Kanda-Jimbōchō.
