The world’s first instant cup noodle soup was created by Nissin Food, the largest Japanese instant noodles manufacturer, and released in 1971. Today, in addition to instant ramen, there are various types of instant noodles in Japan.

My Review 

Myojo Ippeichan Yomise no Yakisoba is famous for its accompanying mustard mayonnaise, because the Ippei-chan Yakisoba was the first instant Yakisoba with mustard mayonnaise at the time when it went on the market.

Since then, I have enjoyed this tasty Yakisoba over and over. Unlike usual instant Yakisoba noodles, with its mustard mayonnaise, the Ippei-chan Yakisoba gives eaters an addicting taste and kick that they never get tired of. Its Yakisoba sauce is mild with a right amount of salt and rich in flavor, which goes perfectly with the mustard mayo.
