On arrival in Japan it was already nearing midnight. I wasn’t exactly in the mood for popping down to a restaurant, so I just entered the nearest 7-11 instead. They had lots of cakes and other treats as well as a good offer of sandwiches. In amongst those, I found a soft bun stuffed with fried noodles, also known as yakisoba. The sales assistant started grinning and proclaimed it was his favorite, so it had to be good.
I can assure you that it was indeed extremely good. The noodles were really soft and fresh and were slathered in a wasabi mayonnaise that gave it a little kick. The wasabi wasn’t overpowering though, and the bread was hardly noticeable. It was so soft it blended in with the noodles. You’d hardly know it was there. This was unexpectedly one of the best sandwiches I’d ever eaten.
