Myojo Ippeichan Yomise no Yakisoba Instant Noodles

The world’s first cup ramen Nissin Cup Noodle was created by the leading Japanese instant noodles manufacturer Nissin in 1971.

And today, in addition to cup ramen, various types of instant noodles can be seen in Japan. 

Among those, instant udon, instant soba, and instant yakisoba are 3 major types, alongside instant ramen.

Speaking of instant yakisoba, the top-selling products are Nissin UFO Sauce Yakisoba and Peyang Sauce Yakisoba, but I have one more product to introduce.

It is “Ippeichan Yomise no Yakisoba (一平ちゃん 夜店の焼そば)” (Price: 193 yen/about 1.7 USD) from Myojo that I want to talk about this time.

Myojo introduced this instant noodle into the market in 1995, and in recent years, the product can also be bought on online marketplaces outside of Japan.


Judging from the number of reviews, Myojo Ippeichan Yomise no Yakisoba seems to be better-known overseas than both Nissin UFO Sauce Yakisoba and Peyang Sauce Yakisoba.

Therefore, for those who are interested in this instant noodle, here, let me share the cooking method with photos, for I actually made the Ippeichan Yakisoba today!


1 First, remove the outer plastic packaging.
2 Peel back the paper lid to the No.2 dotted line on the surface.
3 Take all the packets out of the container. (Black: Yakisoba sauce, Pink: Furikake flakes, Yellow: Mustard mayonnaise)
4 Pour boiling water until it reaches the line indicated inside the cup, entirely covers the noodles.
5 Close the lid, place the yakisoba sauce packet on top, and let the noodles steep for 3 minutes.
6 3 minutes later, peel off the seal on the corner of the lid.
7 And pour away the hot water inside completely from the tiny holes, holding the lid closed with hands.
8 Remove the paper lid and add the yakisoba sauce to the noodles.
9 Stir all the ingredients well with chopsticks.
10 Then, dress the noodles with the mustard mayo.
11 And sprinkle the Furikake flakes over the noodles.
12 Now it’s ready to eat. Enjoy the Yakisoba noodles!


Myojo Ippeichan Yakisoba Noodles

Myojo Ippeichan Yomise no Yakisoba is popular, especially for its accompanying mustard mayo sauce called “Karashi Mayonnaise”.

The product is actually the pioneer of instant yakisoba noodles with mustard mayonnaise, and I have loved this yakisoba since it went on the market.

Unlike ordinary instant yakisoba, the Ippeichan noodle gets an appetizing spicy touch from the mayo sauce.

Its yakisoba sauce is also packed with flavor and makes a perfect combination with the mustard mayonnaise.

Ingredients and Nutrition Facts

According to the information on the official website of Myojo Foods, the yakisoba sauce consists of (Worcester) sauce, sugars, flavor oil, vegetable oil, salt, protein hydrolysate, flavoring, pork extract, spices, and brewed vinegar.

The calories per serving (135 grams) are 602 kcal, and the Ippeichan Yakisoba contains 4.6 g salt equivalents in total.
