Cold Soba (North Korean Style)

This cold soba tasted like what I had when I was in Northeast China. Since it tasted quite different from what I had here in those Korean restaurant, I assume this is the North Korean style since what restaurants here serve is the South Korean style.

I never thought about cooking it until I order it in a Chinese restaurant in College Park, Maryland. It brought me lots of old time memory, so I decided to repeat it at home.
