Yakisoba Pan Monster! We Tried Nissin’s Recipe Using their Super Concentrated U.F.O. Yakisoba

Take Kamen Rider, and then Kary Pamyu Pamyu's hit song "Fashion Monster." Add yakisoba noodles and wrap it all up into a U.F.O. Yakisoba sandwich. Bam!

One of the more unusual sandwiches unique to Japan is the 焼きそばパン yakisoba pan. As you can imagine, the main ingredient is yakisoba noodles, cooked with savory, tangy sauce, and sometimes extras like pork or beef, cabbage, and optionally topped with red pickled ginger, Japanese mayonnaise, and aonori seaweed. To make it, you simply cook up your yakisoba and stuff it into a buttered コッペパン koppepan, which is like a hot dog roll.

In their latest commercial campaign, instant noodle maker Nissin's yakisoba brand U.F.O., which recently features super concentrated sauce and mayonnaise, has been recommending consumers to make a "U.F.O. Monster Yakisoba pan" using their product. In the commercial below you can see the original Kamen Rider actor Hiroshi Fujioka making one as a variation of Kary Pamyu Pamyu's hit song "Fashion Monster" (UFO Monster) plays in the background.

We were curious to find out how this "monster sandwich" would turn out, so we decided to try it out for ourselves.
