Myojo Tokyo Jinbocho Mikasa Instant Yakisoba Noodle

Cooked by stir-frying wheat noodles, pork belly, and vegetables together in a frying pan, Yakisoba (焼きそば) is one of Japan’s favorite foods.

Here, the dish is available in various varieties of instant noodles, and today, I got a limited-time edition instant Yakisoba named Myojo Mikasa (明星 みかさ) priced at 218 yen.

Located in Jinbocho, Tokyo, Yakisoba Mikasa (やきそば みかさ) (Google Maps) is a specialized shop dedicated to Yakisoba noodles.

In front of the restaurant, many people always wait in line to enjoy its specialty Yakisoba.

As for this product, Myojo created it with the help of the restaurant Yakisoba Mikasa, first released on October 8, 2018.


Above are the contents of the Myojo Mikasa instant Yakisoba, whose details are as follows.

  • The blue packet contains a liquid sauce.
  • The red one packs a special sauce.
  • The purple sachet has Furikake flakes, mainly consisting of seaweed particles.

There are two types of sauces enclosed. The liquid sauce is spicy with a kick, while the other special sauce is thick, and its flavor is sweet and rich.


Myojo Mikasa Instant Yakisoba Cooking Instructions

Today, I made the Mikasa Yakisoba following the directions on the lid. And here, I share the cooking process with photos.


1 First, peel the lid up to the No.2 dotted line and take these three packets out of the container.
2 Then, pour boiling water until it reaches the line indicated inside the cup until the noodles are entirely soaked.
3 Close the lid and let the noodles steep for 5 minutes. 
4 5 minutes later, peel off the small brown seal on the corner of the lid.
5 Drain the water inside through the tiny holes, holding the lid closed with your hands. 
6 Remove the paper lid and add the contents of the blue packet (liquid sauce). 
7 Then, give it all a good stir with chopsticks.
8 Put the contents of the red packet (special sauce) over the noodles evenly. 
9 As a finishing touch, sprinkle the contents of the purple sachet (Furikake).
10 Now, it is ready to eat. Enjoy the Mikasa Yakisoba noodles!

  1. I lived in Japan for a while and forgot how to make yakisoba. It’s great to have it back. Now I know it’ll taste just how I remember it.
