Cheese Yakisoba Instant Noodles from Nissin UFO
Yesterday when I went shopping at a supermarket near my house, I came across a newly released instant Yakisoba from Nissin in the instant noodles section.
It featured my favorite food, cheese, so I was attracted to the product.
Cheese Yakisoba Instant Noodle from Nissin UFO Series
After all, I picked up that “Nissin UFO Cheese Yakisoba (Nissin UFO チーズ焼きそば)” with “Koi-Koi (Thick-Thick) Sauce (濃い濃いソース)”.
Yes, this product is from one of the best and most popular instant Yakisoba series in Japan, Nissin UFO.
Based on the official website of Nissin, it was released on May 18 (2020) as a limited-time offer.
Actually, this is the first time in my life I eat cheese-flavored Yakisoba, as Yakisoba is usually flavored with Japanese Worcester sauce or salt and doesn’t use cheese.
But for that, I was attracted to this product. By the way, it cost me about 200 yen (about 2 USD).
In the Yakisoba container, you will see the green and blue flavor packets on the dried wheat noodle block. The garnish only consists of tiny bits of carrots.
The green packet contains a cheese-flavored Yakisoba sauce, while the blue one has a thick brown sauce used as a finishing touch.
The cooking method of this instant Yakisoba is basically the same as the regular UFO Sauce Yakisoba I introduced before.
These are different only in that the cheese Yakisoba has a finishing brown sauce.
This is the finished form. The cheese Yakisoba looks like spaghetti carbonara except for the brown sauce.
In fact, I felt this noodle dish is more on the Italian carbonara side rather than Japanese Yakisoba.
The base cheese sauce was cheddar cheese-based and very flavorful. But I couldn’t find any Yakisoba elements in it.
Instead, the thick-thick brown sauce was sweet and tasted like the addicting Yakisoba sauce for regular UFO Sauce Yakisoba.

Lastly, let’s see the ingredient list and nutrition facts label.
Based on that, the base sauce of this instant Yakisoba consists of liquid seasoning, dairy products, cheese, soy sauce, vegetable oil, salt, sugars, processed cheese, cheese flavoring, and cheese powder.
