On the menu today is something I’ve been very curious to try – yaki-udon! As you might surmise, the yaki prefix means fried. Yakisoba are fried soba noodles, and so yaki-udon are fried udon noodles; simple! Anyways, it sounds really interesting – let’s have a look at this one.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure if there is meat of fish in this one. To prepare, saute some meat and veggies with a little oil. Add a spoonful of water and drop in the noodles and cook a little while. Then drop in the liquid sachet content. Cook until done. Enjoy!
This is a two serving pack, so you get two of these udon noodle pouches.

Reminiscent scent of yakisoba sauce.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, kizami shoga (*pickled ginger), sukiyaki beef, and cabbage. The noodles were just like yesterday – very nice soft, and wide gauge. Excellent quality. The flavor of the yakiudon was very nice; it had the distinct flavor of a yakisoba sauce with a nice little tease of spiciness to it which I found quite good. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.
