#4376: Peyoung Ikasumi Yakisoba - Japan

Here’s one that came in a Zenpop.jp box – use coupon code THERAMENRATER for a groovy discount!

Here’s what they had to say about it – ‘One of Japan’s standard dishes, yakisoba (やきそば) comes with some new, original flavors: Ikasumi (イカスミ, squid ink). Peyoung is behind
this innovation. The company has been making those since the 1970s. Contrary to the common yakisoba recipe, this one is not stir-fried the classic way. The black and white hard package has also spilled a lot of Japanese food blogger’s ink, as it’s quite unique and eye-catching. Filled with squid and garlic toppings, the dish is very tasty, and the sauce reaches near perfection! Cabbage is the vegetable of choice for such a dish, and Peyoung did not forget to add a sizable portion.’

Squid ink noodle is quite good usually – I will type my review though – no ink will be used, save the ingredient that is included. Let’s begin.
