42. Nissin Instant Noodles Japanese Sauce Flavour NISSIN Yakisoba

* drum roll please *  First pack of Instant Noodles from my dream country – JAPAN. The dream of visiting Japan is yet to come true but till then I am happy eating noods from this island nation!!


Let’s Yakisoba! So Yakisoba sauce is supposed to taste similar to Otafuku’s sauce which is basically a combination of the following – Worcestershire sauce, oyster sauce, ketchup, soy sauce and sugar/honey!


 Luckily the cooking instructions are in English and also depicted pictorially.

Cooking without a stove-

  1. Put noodles in the bowl. Pour 400ml of boiling water.
  2. Cover lid, leave for 3 minutes. Pour water out.
  3. Add sauce powder. Stir well and serve.

Cooking on a stove-

  1. Put noodles into 400ml of boiling water. Cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour water out.
  3. Add sauce powder. Stir well and serve.


Isn’t this the cutest noodle block you have laid your eyes on? Japanese never fail to amuse and impress me!


The seasoning powder has a sweet aroma.


 I am short of words to be able to explain how awesome these noodles taste! I think I have found a new favorite. It is slightly on the sweeter side but just the right amount of sweetness.

And you can pair so many things with this – chilli beef/chicken, sausages, stir fry tofu or any vegetable available.


 All I had were some French beans which I sautéed in some olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.


 Superb noodles and so pretty looking!

Pro Tip: do not drain out all the water add some sausages! I have also heard that mayonnaise and seaweed are a common and popular garnishing for these noods.

The only reason it doesn’t get full marks even though it is totally worthy is because I felt the packet was incomplete without any additional garnishing sachet like seaweed or mayonnaise.
