Yakisoba

Part 1 of post (please re-visit: What Food Should We Try While in Japan?), we discussed three Japanese dishes:
- shabu shabu
- onigiri
- kare raisu

My other 3 favorite foods actually noodles or combined of noodle. Comparable to European, Italian foods such as “spaghetti” is noodle too. The same basic “raw material.”

The foods are called as:
- Yakisoba
- Soba
- Udon

Yakisonba is a simple fried noodle for me. In Japan, Yakisoba stir frying noodle mixed with seafood or meat, vegetable and sauces.

We can find “easily” Yakisoba in certain corners of Japanese cities, because Yakisoba is a street food. 


Soba

However, some of street Yakisoba is simply fried noodle mixed with vegetable (chopping cabbage) and spicy sauces.

Another type of Japanese noodle is Soba. It is a long type noodle, just cooked white noodle, then eaten with dipping spicy or sweetly sauces.

We may find quite a “complete” Soba, mixed with vegetable and meat like other Japanese noodle dishes. Healthy and delicious.


Udon

Udon uses bigger (thicker) size of noodle compared to Soba and Yakisoba, but it is a soup version of noodle for me.

You may find Udon in many restaurants in many cities in Japan with local taste and versions.


Sushi with cheese

Just to let you know that sushi blended with cheese available only in the USA. Don’t ask its when you are in Japan. The Chef will confuse for sure.

Have you tried any type of Japanese noodle?

  6. So many amazing options! I have not seen cheese in sushi here yet. That does sound like an odd addition.

  15. Soba is actually the kind of noodle whereas yakisoba is a preparation of those noodles, grilled in this case. One can sometimes find yakiudon, too - same idea, different noodle.

    I had a restaurant in my neighborhood that had a brilliant yakisoba. It was the perfect thing on a hot day. The Japanese philosophy: on a hot day, you should eat hot food to make yourself sweat and cool off. Very effective!
