During this week, we’ve been reviewing different types of yakisoba – but what is Futomen yakisoba? Futomen is a variety with a slight wider gauge noodle than the regular soba noodle. Also I am told that the flavoring is a little spicier. Let’s check it out!
HHere’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure if it contains meat or fish. To prepare, add a little oil to a pan and sautee some meat and vegetables a little. Add 30ml water and the noodles and cook and combine. Add the sachet contents and combine thoroughly. Enjoy!

Has that nice Worcestershire scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added black pepper infused panko breaded baked chicken, green onion, cabbage, sweet onion, Kewpie mayonnaise, and Kizami Shoga (pickled ginger). Indeed, the noodles have a slightly wider gauge – kind of between soba and udon – and they were very good. The flavor was a hint warmer as far as spiciness goes. The flavor is of great yakisoba through and through – delicious! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4901959100178.
