Originating traditionally from Japan ‘Yakisoba’ (焼きそば) the long story of wheat noodles stir-fried is a interesting one, some saying it may have originated from China but overall nowadays it is considered a Japanese dish made with buckwheat noodles or wheat noodles. So if it’s Japanese, what is it doing here on Thaital? Well Yakisoba is still very popular in Thailand and we eat it all the time here, during the vegan festivals many restaurants and vendors will sell Yakisoba and even the health nightmare that is 7/11 often has a nasty plastic vegan version for the microwave (complete with MSG, preservatives and artificial additives.) Of course none of that is going into our version so you will be able to eat it with peace of mind for yourself and your family and friends.
The best way to eat Yakisoba is fresh, straight out of the wok while it is still steaming. It is a fast to eat dish and can be served as a snack or starter before a main as it is quiet light a dish. It’s cheap to make and can be kept in a sealed container in the fridge for a few days if u plan on making a big batch.
