Loose bits from the bowl.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried egg, shrimp, spring onion, mild cheddar, red pepper flake, and Bufalo Clasica sauce. The noodles have a nice kind of whole wheat bump to them which was quite nice. Te flavor was a kind of lemony and spicy affair with notes of shrimp. Spiciness was there but balanced and mellow. Included vegetables were great. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662248140.

Here’s a pretty well known variety from Japan but actually made in Indonesia for Singapore and Malaysia. This one was sent to me by Nissin Singapore (thank you!) and has some big differences when you compare to it’s Japanese cousin – spicy mayonnaise to start with. Let’s unwrap this yakisoba and have a look inside U.F.O.!

Kriuk translates to ‘crunchy’ and these are bits of crunchy onion and garlic with some spiciness.

A sachet of spicy mayonnaise garnish.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, hard boiled egg, fishball and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles came out very well – nice gauge and chew. The flavor was a sweet and tasty one – definitely a fusion of yakisoba sauce and Southeast Asian influences. The mayo was a nice spicy one and the crunchy bits were very good – spicy too! An excellent yakisoba. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8992718853561.

#738: Nissin U.F.O. (Unidentified Flying Object) Yakisoba

This one is a donation from Courtnay N. of Surrey, BC! She brought some back from a trip to Japan! Thanks! So this looks really interesting – let’s give it a try!

Here’s the bottom of the package (click image to enlarge).

This is what you see once you remove the plastic wrapping (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block – a nice, big, round disc!

Kind of looks like this piece I did a long time ago!

Under the noodle block, some veggies and – yes – dried meat!

Here’s the liquid seasoning pack.

The liquid seems to be yakisoba sauce and oil.

This looks like…

Seaweed to put on top! Sweet!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a little of the veggie mix we made, a little beef lunch meat, a little kizami shoga (pickled ginger) and a pinch of Ajishima Kimchi furikake. The noodles are a bit mushy; a bummer. I expected them to be a little higher quality. The yakisoba sauce mixture has a wonderful taste – I like how it is liquid instead of a powdered addition. The veggies are nice and the meat re hydrated nicely! The powdered seaweed adds a nice extra taste to everything. Wish the noodles were a little better, but the flavors are really good – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4902105022122 .

Yakisoban, to the rescue!

Yep – there’s a Super Nintendo game!

Okay so I’ve shown KPop and VPop, but here’s some Bubblegum JPop – Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. What I’ve noticed is that all three of these regional pop forms maintain intrusively catchy melodies that will eat your mind and spit it out on the sidewalk. My wife and I have listened to this album about a thousand times in the car already – she knows all the words and we have both developed sore necks and minds from the tunes.
