One of the most unusual sandwiches unique to Japan is the yakisoba dish 焼きそばパン. As you can imagine, the main ingredient is yakisoba noodles, cooked with a savory and tangy sauce, and sometimes extras like pork or beef, cabbage, and optionally topped with red pickled ginger, Japanese mayonnaise and of aonori seaweed. To make it, you just need to cook your yakisoba and stuff it in a buttered コッペパン koppepan, which looks like a hot dog roll.
In its latest marketing campaign, UFO, the yakisoba brand of instant noodle maker Nissin, which recently introduced super-concentrated sauce and mayonnaise, recommended that consumers make a “UFO Monster Yakisoba Casserole” using their product. . In the commercial below, you can see original Kamen Rider actor Hiroshi Fujioka doing one as a variation of Kary Pamyu Pamyu’s hit song “Fashion Monster” (UFO Monster) playing in the background.
We were curious how this “monster sandwich” would turn out, so we decided to try it for ourselves.
