Here’s a pretty well known variety from Japan but actually made in Indonesia for Singapore and Malaysia. This one was sent to me by Nissin Singapore (thank you!) and has some big differences when you compare to it’s Japanese cousin – spicy mayonnaise to start with. Let’s unwrap this yakisoba and have a look inside U.F.O.!

The noodle block.
Loose broken noodle and garnish from the tray.
The dry base sachet.
The seasoned oil sachet.
Has a kind of marbled appearance.
The kriuk sachet.
Kriuk translates to ‘crunchy’ and these are bits of crunchy onion and garlic with some spiciness.
A sachet of spicy mayonnaise garnish.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, hard boiled egg, fishball and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles came out very well – nice gauge and chew. The flavor was a sweet and tasty one – definitely a fusion of yakisoba sauce and Southeast Asian influences. The mayo was a nice spicy one and the crunchy bits were very good – spicy too! An excellent yakisoba. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8992718853561.
