#1521: Maruchan Gotsumori Sauce Yakisoba

Okay, I’m familiar with yakisoba, but what’s Gotsumori sauce all about? After some scouring of the Internet, I didn’t find a whole lot. I found on the manufacturer’s site that the sauce is spicy and also has a sachet of Kewpie karashimayonnaise (kind of a mayo-mustard thing). Anyways, yeah I’m definitely coming up short on this one! Let’s have a look.

Under the wraps – this is the large lid for this tray (click image to enlarge). To prepare, open the lid using tab A to the line B. Remove all sachets. Empty vegetable sachet into the tray. Add boiling water to fill line and re-cover. Let steep for 3 minutes. Remove tab C and drain. Remove the whole lid and add in large sauce sachet. Stir well and top with mayonnaise sachet. Enjoy!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed beef, sweet onion and broccoli with a little kizami shoga on top. The noodles are bouncy and tasty – and plentiful; this is a massive amount of food and could easily be split for two people. The yakisoba sauce doesn’t come across as spicy at all, but has a very nice flavor. The vegetables hydrated exceptionally well – the cabbage was crunchy! The Kewpie mayonnaise has a nice hit of spiciness though – and it works extremely well. Great stuff! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars EAN bar code 4901990324595.

You can get these Gotsumori Yakisoba trays here on Amazon!

I think this is awesome – so it looks like they’ve got a ton of different yakisoba and they’re all trying to tell which is which by taste? Whatever’s going on, it’s pretty awesome. Wish I would’ve been there! I mean, I’ve tried one or two tray yakisobas in my time… Maybe next time?
