Yakisoba is a Japanese style chow mein made with wheat flour noodles, vegetables, and meat. Yakisoba literally means
fried buckwheat noodles but the wheat flour noodles used are different from soba noodles. Vegetables usually include cabbage, carrots, bean sprouts, onions, bell peppers, and more. Pork is usually the choice of protein and cut into bite sized pieces. The noodles, vegetables, and meat are all cooked and flavored with yakisoba sauce, similar to Worcestershire sauce and served with
beni shoga (shredded pickled ginger),
aonori (seaweed powder),
katsuobushi (bonito flakes), and mayonnaise.
Yakisoba is a popular festival dish, sold at many festivals and events in yatai food booths. The attendant usually prepares the yakisoba on a large grill in a row of other food and game stands. Yakisoba is also sometimes served in bread as yakisoba-pan. Bread is sliced like a hot dog and stuffed with yakisoba and garnished with toppings. Yakisoba pan can be found at bakeries and convenient stores. Yakisoba pan is sometimes featured in shonen anime & manga as food for underclassmen to buy for their senpai's.
