Yakisoba (焼きそば): A Popular Japanese Street Vendor Food


There is actually a story to this dish.  Julie had always made yakisoba on different occasions and when I saw her variation on it, I wanted to have my own because her tasted so great!  The week after, I decided to do some research on yakisoba and combine some more ingredients to separate myself from the crowd…and this is the end result.  This dish is quick and easy to make, so let’s get on with it!


2 cups of yakisoba noodles
2 tablespoons of Tonkatsu sauce
1 cups of thinly diced cabbage
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1/2 cup of scallions
3 tablespoons of dried ground seaweed (it’s the green variety)
2 tablespoons of bonito flakes
Pinch of salt


First put the oil in a large sautee pan.  Add the cabbage + pinch of salt and sautee the cabbage until it sweats.  Then add in the noodles.  Mix the cabbage well with the noodles.  Add in the tonkatsu sauce and cook until its warm and hot all the way through.

Plate the dish and add in the seaweed, bonito flakes, and the scallions…and you’re done.  SEE!! Really easy to make!

As far as ingredients go, you can adjust them to however much you want and how sweet you want he dish to be.  Have fun and be creative.
