Yakisoba is a popular food that is relatively easy to make at home.
Prepare some Chinese noodles and cabbage, throw it into an oiled pan, add water and fry it up.

After stir-frying the noodles, season with yakisoba sauce.
We recommend trying it with some mayonnaise or adding pickled ginger on the side, two authentic ways of serving it in Japan.
Yakisoba sold at Japanese food stands are generally sold in small plastic containers, as shown at 3:38 in the video.
