Japanese Yakisoba & Vegetable Stir Fry Noodles

Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

Yakisoba is a cheap and cheerful Japanese summertime barbecue dish. Unlike other soba noodles, yakisoba noodles do not contain any buckwheat. Rather, they are made from wheat flour and egg, and prepared in a deliciously savoury/sweet, fruity, barbecue-like sauce. Fry up your own yakisoba.

Today, let’s make Japanese stir-fried noodles, Yakisoba!

Yaki means fried/grilled and Soba means buckwheat (wheat noodles). It is very popular noodle dish in Japan, especially on the street. Every Asian country has their own #1 street noodles and this is Japanese version. In Japan, there won’t be a festival without yakisoba.

It is tangy, sweet and savory flavor. Lots of crunch vegetables such as cabbage, carrots and onions. Usually made with some kind of protein and I believe pork is most common one, but chicken, pork, shrimp or even tofu for vegetarian version is great!

Let’s see the video to prepare this delicious dish!


  • Cheerful: Pleasant, happy.
  • Tangy: A strong taste, smell, or flavor.
  • Savory: Pleasing, attractive, or agreeable.
  • Cabbage: A plant that has a short stem and leaves that form into a rounded head. Similar to a Lettuce.


Check the ingredients and the vocabulary carefully so you can prepare your own dish.


  • Which other Japanese recipe have you prepared?
