Yakisoba is a dish prepared in Japan which consists of stir fried noodles with vegetables, different types of meat and sauces for flavoring. The origin of Yakisoba is thought to be in China from where the recipe for chow mein was taken and adapted to create Yakisoba.

The noodles used in Yakisoba are made from wheat flour instead of buckwheat, which makes it very easy to prepare; versions of the dish require just the addition of warm water. Yakisoba is a very popular dish with US soldiers posted in Japan who place it between buns and eat it with ham like hot dogs.
