Found this one at Uwajimaya, a Japanese grocery store chain up here in the Pacific Northwest. I’m always keen on trying a new yakisoba; I usually enjoy them with a little karashi mayo! So this variety is dashi shoyu flavor. Dashi is used to make broth for traditional Japanese ramen, and shoyu is soy sauce. Let’s have a look at this one from Japanese company Acecook.

The noodle block.
The seasoning liquid.
Has a salty soy scent.
Here’s some of the dehydrated vegetables, of which cabbage is prominent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, mung bean sprouts and Kewpie mayonnaise. The noodles has a nice gauge and feel- very standard for an instant yakisoba. The flavoring. It was way too salty and over powering. To be honest, it almost had a kind of coffee element to it that was bitter as well. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901071222222.
