Kenko Foods Yakisoba – Japan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it has meat – check for yourself. To prepare, boil 180ml water in a skillet and cook noodle block. Once water is absorbed (3 minutes), add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
This one got a little beaten up in the hamper.
A liquid base sachet.
A garnish sachet.
Looks like seaweed and perhaps a little more.
Finished (click to enlarge). Noodle ended up a little on the sticky side. Kind of gooey – then again much of it was broken so that may account for part of it. The flavor was alright – a kind of different yakisoba – not as sharp or crisp a hit to it than I’m used to. The sprinkle of garnish was pretty good – like a seaweed mix that works well. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4973044020142.
I make yakisoba all the time for my family. Usually I use boneless chicken breast and skip the shiitake
