I was thinking about which dish would be good for the first post for my new English blog. But I did not need a long time to think about it. Most people know about Yakisoba which is Japanese Style Chow Mein. Delicious, healthy, comfort food, good for lunch and often I cook for dinner. It is local food in Osaka (which is my hometown! ) I am a Yakisoba expert!! But it became famous around all Japan. You can use sliced Bacon or Ham instead of Pork Belly. I often do that my self:)
