Noodle salad at Hana?

I know this is an oddly specific request, but does anyone know what type of noodle salad it is they make at Hana Uptown? I've googled everything and can't find much off of my memories of what it tastes like and no other sushi/Japanese restaurants make anything similar from what I've found.

For those who haven't had it, it's a noodle salad with spaghetti-like noodles in a mild creamy sauce served cold with thin slices of cucumber in it. If anyone has any clue what these noodles are (so I can find a similar recipe!) I'd be eternally grateful (pregnant woman away from home craving these silly noodles!)

  1. It's a pretty simple thing: glass noodles in a thinned, mayo dressing. Have you tried Kewpie brand mayo?

      Heard of it but never bought it/ seen it at the store. Maybe I'll keep a closer eye out.

      I suspected it was something simple but once before when I tried it with mayo thinned in milk it just didn't taste right. I'll hunt for Kewpie next time I'm at the store. Thanks for the idea :)

        Hungry Celeste, Kewpie is the best! Also, I add just a tiny bit of sesame oil to mine and roasted sesame seeds.
