Unidentified Flying Object

Something that I’d acquired at the supermarket on my trip to Japan in January but didn’t get around to eating while I was there (see generally 2.024 Sambal-Soy-Soju Shrimp).   Not sure what it is – Japanese products sold in Japan display virtually no English on the packaging, which is surprising for such a modern country that has adopted a lot of English words into their mainstream vocabulary.  The only English here is “UFO (Unidentified Flying Object)” – I’m assuming in reference to the shape of the bowl.  Although I studied a bit of Japanese in college, I’ve since forgotten how to read Japanese characters, and I’m too lazy to look it up – it’s really not that important.  Anyway, the noodles taste like yakisoba, a bit heavy on the worcestershire sauce.

Wasn’t so bad as far as instant noodles go, certainly a welcome change from Korean instant noodles – not that I eat a lot of instant noodles.
