What are Hibachi Noodles?
There’s something so fun and special about going out to dinner at a Hibachi grill! I used to work a Japanese steakhouse as a server in college and really only applied for the job because I loved the food so much. Needless to say, I was in heaven, and I took full advantage and ate hibachi noodles pretty much every day. Hibachi noodles are delicious noodles coated in a sweet, savory and tangy sauce, typically served in Japanese restaurants.
Once I went gluten-free and soy-free, I never thought I’d be able to have these hibachi noodles again. I finally decided to try it at home, and I promise it tastes like the real deal and is fairly low effort! These hibachi noodles are made with gluten-free noodles and a delicious soy-free sauce, and is paleo and easily made AIP and vegan!
