So here’s what the folks at Japan Crate had to say about this variety -“Yakisoba is a Japanese noodle stir-fry dish enjoyed all over Japan and is the perfect dish for the summer without a hot soup base. This type of yakisoba is flavored with a salt seasoning rather than the traditional soy sauce dressing.”

Looks like sesame seeds, seaweed and possibly tempura bits.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, baked chicken (seasoned with black pepper, garlic powder, and Nutek Salt for Life). Noodles were pretty good – hydrated well and not at all spongy. The flavor was good – a little sweet and a nice shio hit. Sesame notes as well. Topping garnish (not pictured) featured sesame seeds and bits of tempura which had a satisfying crunch. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901071207540.
