Yaki Soba

Yaki Soba

Christopher: ‘Yaki Soba is a wonderful Japanese chow mein dish which has nothing to do with soba noodles. This dish is so quick, so easy and so full of flavour. It has a beautiful fresh taste that is miles away from that of a greasy chow mein.’

This noodle dish takes: 30 mins
