Woot woot! It is so rare these days I can get my hands on a variety from the Philippines that I’ve not reviewed yet and so I’m really stoked on this one. What’s interesting is that there are two Nissin companies in the Philippines. Nissin Monde and Nissin Universal Robina. Nissin Monde is actually a company that first started out selling biscuits. Nissin Universal-Robina is an arm of the well known Japanese empire of instant noodles. Nissin Monde is responsible for the Lucky Me! brand. Kind of interesting and odd. Anyways, let’s check this yakisoba out!

The noodle block.
A dry sachet.
A light powder.
A wet sachet.
A thick oily paste.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added green onion. The noodles had a little more chewiness than I expected, but that wasn’t a bad thing. The tough part was getting the liquid sachet content to distribute. But once I did, this was quite enjoyable! A nice sweetness, spiciness, and hint of chicken taste worked well. As for being yakisoba, that was a little stretch but whatever you call it, it was good. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4800016551864.
