Popular toppings are some meat (ham, boiled chicken or barbecued pork (char siu)), strips of tamagoyaki (egg omelette), summer vegetables like cucumber and tomatoes, menma (fermented bamboo shoots), and beni shōga (pickled ginger) as condiment. Toppings are cut thin, to mix well with the noodles and the sauce. The tare sauce is usually made with a base of either soy sauce and rice vinegar, or sesame seeds and mayonnaise (ゴマだれ (gomadare)).
