  4. I almost only ever eat yakisoba at the beach here in Japan, how odd. I like it, I just usually pick other stuff first when I'm in town or at festivals I guess. Will def have to try it at home though, looks simple.
    (I wonder why I never thought of doing that before?)

  5. Thanks Ri, it is a popular festival food that is so easy to make at home. You should give it a try.

  6. This is my favorite Japanese noodle dish, I bought it whenever I had the chance, from festival stalls or convenience stores…

  7. What sort of tomato sauce should you use? Ordinary 'ketchup' from a bottle, tomato paste or pure pureed tomatoes?

  8. You just use an ordinary tomato ketchup from a bottle. We use good old Heinz ketchup.

  9. Where can I find this Worcestershire sauce?
    Do you have a picture of the bottle that you can show me? Thanks much!

  10. Worcestershire sauce is a sauce from the UK that adds instant richness and body to any dish. In Australia, you can find Worcestershire sauce at every local supermarket. There are quite a few different brands, but my favourite is the original Lea & Perrins from the UK.

  11. Hi! Thanks for the recipe, looks like a good way to recreate the sauce, etc. with local (cheaper!) products. Can you clarify please - your recipe is missing the unit of measurement for the Worcestershire sauce...is that 2 tbsp?

  12. Sorry about that! It should read 2 Tbsp of Worcestershire sauce. This is a base for a lot of sauces in Japan and can be used for such things as Tonkatsu and other fried goodies.
