This somen expert says "if you make somen noodles this way, they won't get gummy and chewy, and they'll be much more delicious than if you'd boiled them." And, even better, "as an added bonus, you don't have to stand at the stove and watch the noodles boil, so you can go cool off while you leave them to cook."
