Japan: Myojo Foods launches “grilled eel sauce” flavour yakisoba

According to sources, the new product features flavours of soy sauce, mirin and eel extract as well as garlic and ginger. It also comes with a separate sauce of wasabi mayonnaise and sansho (Japanese pepper) to more closely replicate a real grilled eel dish.
