Seafood Yakisoba 焼きそば

One of my friend is a flight attendant, so she helped me to get some goodies from Japan,
as buying Japanese stuffs in Singapore is really costly~
She bought one big plastic bag of food stuffs for me,
like okonomiyaki sauce, soba sauce, sesame salad dressing, instant gravy to cook prawns e.t.c.
and all of these only cost SGD20...
All the sauces were left in my shelf for months..and I decided to use them..finally!

This is one of the yakisoba sauce..
But I don't know why it is a bit diluted. 
Not so thick. But a good point is that it's not so salty too...

Yakisoba is literally known as fried noodles.
Although it's called soba, but the noodles are not made from buckwheat.
It's made from wheat flour instead.
 My first Yakisoba!
These frozen prawns from Indonesia were really crunchy! Better than some fresh prawns!
And scallops tasted just as good!

 As for the noodles. I got them from Meidi-ya..
it's a simple and nearly instant meal to make plus it doesn't take much time to prepare...
Try's delicious!
