Today we have a Zenpop.JP variety – so what’s Zenpop? They’re a subscription service for all things Japanese! Definitely, check them out. By the way, use coupon code RAMENRATER to get $2 off! Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Ripe jalapeno peppers are used to make the Yakisoba addictively spicy. Adding mayonnaise brings out the sour and savory taste of the okonomiyaki sauce. Even in this hot weather, the smell of the yakisoba will always intensify your appetite.’
I should note that although they reference mayonnaise in this one, this one doesn’t include it. Anyways, let’s check it out!

The noodle block.
Loose bits from the tray.
A wet sachet.
A dark sauce!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, chashu pork, and sriracha mayonnaise. The noodle came out fine – no problem there. Unfortunately, the japaneo flavor was a bit bitter and just kind of overrode the deliciousness of the wsy the original version was. Kind of bummed out. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.
