Easy Menu with Honmono Nippon EP. 6 – Yakisoba


Yakisoba is one of the foods usually sold at festivals in Japan and you can easily find it at convenience stores or Japanese restaurants in general. Although this dish is called yakisoba, the noodles used are usually Chinese yellow noodles or ramen noodles. Lightly sear on the pan and stir fry with the sauce and other ingredients until resulting in fried noodles that look appetizing, the taste is salty, sweet, mellow, delicious, and pleasing to both children and adults. Today we’d like to show you how to make a simple yakisoba menu. Let’s get this party going. ~~~
