#1207: Nissin U.F.O. (Unidentified Flying Object) Yakisoba With Wasabi Mayonnaise

Yakisoba is great but add some mayo with wasabi? Man that sounds really good! Let’s have a look at this one!

Here are the details from the side and bottom (click image to enlarge).

Here’s the lid of the bowl (click image to enlarge). Note the drain spout on the upper part.

The noodle block.

The liquid ingredient sachet.

Has a nice yakisoba sauce scent.

What have we here?

Has a kind of salty meat and seaweed taste to it.

Here’s the wasabi mayonnaise sachet. You open a corner and squirt!

The veggies from the bottom of the bowl. Looks like cabbage and other bits in there.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed beef and sweet onion and green onion. The noodles are plentiful and have a nice texture – they’re rounded and kind of fluffy. The flavor is very nice; you start with a standard Worcestershire yakisoba taste. The wasabi mayonnaise has a good ‘zing’ to it. Of course, this is a very greasy dish, but that’s the point. The little sprinkles added a very nice seaweed/saltiness. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4902105224076.

Japanese commercials where UFO’s are involved from 1979-1999 – this is pretty great stuff!

#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.
