Try Making “Nissin UFO Sauce Yakisoba Pan” Hot Dog

When I stopped by a 7-Eleven store on the way to work yesterday, I purchased a quirky hot dog bun together with a bowl of pre-cooked ramen.

Actually, I had been a little curious about the newly released sandwich bun over the last few weeks because of its food combination.

What drew my interest this time is this Japanese hot dog bun called Yakisoba Pan (焼きそばパン), where the Yakisoba (焼きそば) noodles come in the slit of a partially sliced bun. 

That food combination might sound strange, but Yakisoba Pan has long been a staple in Japan and is available at almost every convenience store.

And this one uses Nissin UFO’s Yakisoba sauce as its main seasoning, which is why I wanted to try it.

For the unfamiliar, Nissin UFO Sauce Yakisoba is one of Japan’s top-selling, most-loved instant Yakisoba noodles. It features its special thick Yakisoba sauce, which is famous for being addictive.
