What is Yakisoba?

Have you ever tried yakisoba? At Aji Sushi and Grill’s Issaquah Japanese restaurant, you can try this popular dish with beef, chicken, shrimp, or vegetables. It is a fried noodle dish, derived from the Chinese chow mein and adapted somewhat to suit Japanese tastes. In Japan, the dish is frequently enjoyed at festivals, and is a big hit with many foreigners from the West.

People familiar with the Japanese dish soba might make the mistake of assuming that yakisoba is related to these buckwheat noodles. However, despite the similarities of their names, yakisoba and soba are not very closely related. Yakisoba is traditionally served warm, and is not frequently made from buckwheat. It is, however, a hearty and delicious treat, so come on down for a plate today at Aji Sushi and Grill!
