Myojo Ippeichan Yomise no Yakisoba Instant Noodles

The world’s first instant cup noodle soup, Nissin Cup Noodle was created by Japan’s largest instant noodles manufacturer Nissin in 1971, and today, in addition to instant ramen, there are various types of instant noodles available in Japan.

Even among those, especially instant Udon, instant buckwheat Soba, and instant Yakisoba are 3 major types, together with instant ramen.

Speaking of instant Yakisoba, although the top-selling products in Japan are Nissin UFO Sauce Yakisoba and Peyang Sauce Yakisoba, I have one more product to introduce, which has not only been a favorite of many Japanese for a long time, but is also fairly well recognized in some overseas countries.

Myojo Ippeichan Yakisoba Noodles

Myojo Ippeichan Yomise no Yakisoba is famous for its accompanying mustard mayonnaise called “Karashi Mayonnaise” in Japan, because the Ippeichan Yakisoba was the first instant Yakisoba that came with mustard mayonnaise when it went on the market.

Since then, I have enjoyed this Yakisoba over and over. Unlike normal instant Yakisoba noodles, with the addition of the mustard mayonnaise, the Ippeichan Yakisoba gets an addicting spicy touch that stimulates the appetite.

Its Yakisoba sauce is also rich in flavor and goes perfectly with the mustard mayo.
