Yakisoba: the Japanese Chow Mein

Have you ever tried yakisoba? At our Lynnwood Japanese restaurant, you can try this popular dish in a variety of delicious forms. It is a fried noodle dish, related to the Chinese chow mein and adapted slightly to fit Japanese sensibilities. In Japan, the dish is frequently enjoyed at festivals, and is a big hit with foreigners as well.

People familiar with the Japanese soba might make the mistake of assuming that yakisoba is related to these buckwheat noodles. However, yakisoba and soba are quite dissimilar. Yakisoba is traditionally served warm and, though it contains the word “soba”, it is not generally made from buckwheat. It is, however, a hearty and delicious treat, so come on down for a plate today at Wild Wasabi!
