The Polynesian has so many great places to eat, and I love the flavors that are often infused with pineapple, coconut, honey, etc. Ohana is a super fun place to get dinner with tons of food. Even though I can’t eat there in person any time soon, I’ve been having a good time recreating some of the recipes at home so I can have my own Ohana feast! Today I’m happy to share with you the stir-fry noodle recipe from Ohana.
A few weeks ago I decided to make Ohana’s honey coriander wings, but it seemed like we needed something to go with the wings. Of course it makes sense to stick with the Ohana theme, so I went with their stir-fry! At the restaurant they serve up a huge plate of delicious noodles and some sort of vegetable, so I also made some broccoli with this.
The type of noodle used with this is a yakisoba noodle, but I wasn’t sure exactly what that was so I did a little research. Soba noodles are buckwheat noodles, and the “yaki” part means fried. So when the recipe calls for yakisoba noodles, you can buy and cook soba noodles. Then adding them to the stir-fry is “frying” them. At least this worked for me! You could probably pre-fry them too if you really wanted but I did it this way and it worked well. I made sure to buy curly noodles since they reminded me more of Ohana, but of course flavor-wise it doesn’t matter.
