Yokote Yakisoba is a regional fast-food originating from Akita, Japan. Yokote Yakisoba is served with a sunny side up egg and Fukujinzuke (a red pickled vegetable). The sweet and tangy flavor of the sauce and thick noodles is popular among the locals in Yokote City, Akita prefecture. For this recipe, we used our Premium Original Yakisoba to recreate Yokote-style Yakisoba! Add mentsuyu and mirin to our sauce for a sweeter sauce! Mix the sunny side up with yakisoba and enjoy!
