Nissin’s Classic UFO Sauce Yakisoba Instant Noodle

Yakisoba is one of the noodle dishes representing Japan made by stir-frying wheat noodles with meat, such as pork belly, and vegetables like cabbage, onion, and carrot.

We Japanese often enjoy it at home, so the pre-prepared noodles are available at every supermarket, and the products usually come with a flavor packet.

Also, Japan has a wide variety of instant Yakisoba noodles, among which Nissin UFO Sauce Yakisoba and Peyang Sauce Yakisoba are top-selling products.

The former is best-known in the western part of Japan, while those living in East Japan are more familiar with the latter.
