Hi chefs

Im trying to find out if theres a difference between fresh yakisoba noodles and fresh ramen noodles?
Can i use fresh yakisoba for ramen? There is this brand called " fortune " they make fresh yakisoba noodles, the thing is i cannot really order it from my vendor, as it come in bulks. They wont give me sample either, just dont want to waste a lot of yakisoba noodles if i end ordering it and it doesnt work well as ramen.

I looked up the ingredient list for Fortune yakisoba and they don't list egg or kansui, so the noodles will soak up more moisture and become much softer.

Not that soba noodles aren’t delicious, but they definitely aren’t the same as ramen noodles. Ramen noodles are alkanized for their district chewiness and is key for a proper ramen.
