Instant Yakisoba Challenge

On Sunday there was a show on TV called “Onegai Ranking” that caught my husband’s attention.  The ranking of the week was things you could add to instant yakisoba to jazz it up.  We caught the last five and hubby wanted to try the top two.  Did I mention that it was a top twenty list?  A bit much for something that isn’t really food to begin with, in my opinion.

Here are the top two in order:

  1. Instant yakisoba mixed with corn cream soup
  2. Instant yakisoba mixed with yuzu kosho

The ingredients: instant corn cream soup (left), instant yakisoba (middle) and yuzu kosho (right)

The verdict:

I preferred the yuzu kosho version.  I really don’t eat instant noodles more than once a quarter so now I am good until summer.  Hubby liked the yuzu kosho but loved the corn cream soup.  I think he will be repeating that one.  Gross!

  1. All things are good with yuzu kosho. I think it may be a missing food group. But yeah, I have to say… instant noodles just ain’t very nice. That’s like a top-20 list for ways to make a not very yummy thing taste a little more interesting.

  3. I can see we are in complete agreement. Have you ever added yuzu kosho to regular yakisoba? I need to try this soon.
