#738: Nissin U.F.O. (Unidentified Flying Object) Yakisoba

This one is a donation from Courtnay N. of Surrey, BC! She brought some back from a trip to Japan! Thanks! So this looks really interesting – let’s give it a try!

Here’s the bottom of the package (click image to enlarge).

This is what you see once you remove the plastic wrapping (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block – a nice, big, round disc!

Kind of looks like this piece I did a long time ago!

Under the noodle block, some veggies and – yes – dried meat!

Here’s the liquid seasoning pack.

The liquid seems to be yakisoba sauce and oil.

This looks like…

Seaweed to put on top! Sweet!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a little of the veggie mix we made, a little beef lunch meat, a little kizami shoga (pickled ginger) and a pinch of Ajishima Kimchi furikake. The noodles are a bit mushy; a bummer. I expected them to be a little higher quality. The yakisoba sauce mixture has a wonderful taste – I like how it is liquid instead of a powdered addition. The veggies are nice and the meat re hydrated nicely! The powdered seaweed adds a nice extra taste to everything. Wish the noodles were a little better, but the flavors are really good – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4902105022122 .

Yakisoban, to the rescue!

Yep – there’s a Super Nintendo game!

Okay so I’ve shown KPop and VPop, but here’s some Bubblegum JPop – Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. What I’ve noticed is that all three of these regional pop forms maintain intrusively catchy melodies that will eat your mind and spit it out on the sidewalk. My wife and I have listened to this album about a thousand times in the car already – she knows all the words and we have both developed sore necks and minds from the tunes.
