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.

The most striking feature of this noodle is the addicting savory taste from the sweet and thick special Yakisoba sauce.
The thick straight noodles are also pleasantly chewy and pair perfectly with the flavorful sauce.
