Make a few cuts in the kombu – this helps to release flavour. Combine the kombu and water in a saucepan placed over a medium heat. Simmer for 15 minutes. Then set aside and chill.
Heat the oil in a wok until it just starts to smoke.
Transfer the oil to a medium bowl and allow it to cool.
Cook the noodles and spaghetti according to the package directions. Drain and toss with the oil in the medium bowl or on a small, rimmed baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate until cold.
In a small bowl, whisk together the soya sauce, sugar, vinegar, crushed Sichuan peppercorns and salt.
Divide the noodles and spaghetti between 4 bowls. Pour 250ml of the chilled dashi over each and garnish with the spring chopped spring onions, chilli, sesame seeds and a drizzle of the soya sauce mixture.
