Yakisoba (焼きそば), literally fried buckwheat or Sōsu Yakisoba (ソース焼きそば), the same, but in sauce, is considered a Japanese dish but originated in China and is technically a derivative of Chinese chow mein. It first appeared in food stalls in Japan at some point during the early 20th century. Although soba means buckwheat, typically suggesting noodles made from that flour in mainland Japan, yakisoba noodles are made from wheat flour. It is typically flavoured with a sweetened, thickened condiment similar to Oyster sauce.
