What Are Yakisoba Noodles?

Yakisoba noodles are a kind of Japanese fried noodle. In fact, Yakisoba literally translated means “fried noodles”. Yakisoba was originally derived from the Chinese chow mein. While chow mein uses soy sauce, the Japanese use this noodle with a Worcestershire sauce. Yakisoba is very easy to make and you can add almost any ingredients to make it your own. Packages of yakisoba kits are even available at Asian grocery stores.
