Yakisoba Pan : I Made it with Instant Yakisoba and Hot Dog Buns
Yakisoba, together with Ramen, Udon and Soba, is one of the noodle dishes most commonly eaten in Japan throughout the year.
Unlike Ramen, Yakisoba is a noodle dish with no broth, which is made by stir-frying steamed wheat noodles with meat and vegetables, and seasoned typically with Japanese-style Worcester sauce.
It may sound strange if you are not aquatinted with the Japanese food culture, but the food combination of Yakisoba noodles and buns is ordinary in Japan.
In fact, the hot dog bun with Yakisoba noodles, “Yakisoba Pan (焼きそばパン)” is available in many supermarkets and convenience stores and is widely enjoyed, so it is no exaggeration to say that Yakisoba Pan is one of the most beloved savory bread in Japan.
