Yakisoba means ‘fried noodles’ and is commonly found all over Japan at festivals, sporting events, and shops that specialize in okonomiyaki (a type of Japanese pancake). Despite having ‘soba’ in the name, yakisoba is actually made with thin Chinese egg noodles. It’s healthy and diabetes-friendly. Most of all, it’s delicious!
