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!

 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.
