Meet The Manufacturer: #1385: Takamori Yaki-Udon Roast Soy Sauce

First things first: Happy Mother’s Day! Don’t forget to call your Mom today!

This one sounds good – yaki-udon is something really new to me and during this Meet The Manufacturer, the first time I’ve tried it. The one I had the other day was really tasty – curious how this one will be! Basically the different between yakisoba and yakiudon is that it’s a wider gauge noodle. Let’s see how this one with roast soy sauce flavor comes out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure, but I’m guessing it contains fish. To prepare, heat oil in a pan and add seafood and veggies and cook a little,m then drop in the noodles and cook longer. Add the seasoning sachet contents and cook til done. Enjoy!

The fresh udon pouch – you get three of these and three sauce sachets.

The liquid base sachet.

A nice soy scented liquid.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added kizami shoga (pickled ginger), cabbage, sukiyaki beef, Kewpie mayonnaise, green onion and sweet onion. The udon noodles are very nice – great chewiness and gauge. The flavor is not your typical yakisoba sauce, but has a nice soy flavor. None of the Worcestershire flavor one might be accustomed to here. It’s really nice though and something I would enjoy on repeated offering. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4901959100369.
