Hiyashi Kamo Soba $18.80 ( chilled noodle with roast duck & poached egg ). Was feeling hungry and yet want something refreshing so i instantly thought of chilled noodles cause usually can't go too wrong. Roast duck itself was ok. I find it nothing too special despite being from France! The chilled soba and poached egg was actually more enjoyable. The dressing was good and definitely has the refreshing taste i wanted. Poached egg was done beautifully despite being not in a super pretty presentation. Soba dishes here so far hasn't disappoint me yet. A trusty brand name i can count on for my soba cravings! =) continue reading

Just catching up with ex-colleagues at Shimbashi Soba, it was one of the popular restaurants at NEX Shokutsu 10 – Yokoso! Japan. Surrounded by various Japanese choices, we stayed on our initial plan. We sat down and started to discuss what to eat. Cozy atmosphere, we took our time to pick our preference.According to the first page of Menu, Soba was a kind of healthy handmade noodles. Using natural Wheat Flour and Soba Flour, dough was kneaded and boiled freshly. Proven to be good for liver, colon and heart, it was also beneficial in anti-aging and beauty. Among extensive choices, I opted for noodles under Warm Soba category. It was in soup with bee, fishcakes, vegetables and egg, portion was rather huge. Of course price was steep, $18.80 for a bowl of simple meal yet the value was much greater. continue reading

I usually see people eat Soba as sort of a side dish in Japanese Restaurant so I was quite surprised when there was this restaurant selling mainly soba in Shokutsu 10 in NEX.We ordered a hot soba, chilled soba and a mixed katsu respectively. I really liked the hot soba as the soup was refreshing but not too salty, together with the seaweeds, it was very delicious. The set was less than $20 and came with sushi and sashimi. What I didn't like was the soy sauce that is given was too salty. The chilled soba was nice too but in my opinion the soba was not cold enough. The mixed katsu came with a softshell crab which was really crispy and nice continue reading

Shimbashi Soba is a delicate restaurant that specialized in Soba. You could definitely expect a very good quality soba from them. They serve a variety of cold and warn soba, one would find themselves very impressed, just like us. We both ordered Shokado set. For Shokado set A ($22.90), you will get a bowl of cold handmade soba (or warm soba if you'd like) with assorted vegetables, salmon and kajiki sashimi, assorted sushi, sweet young corn and egg omelette with mentaiko sauce, as well as chawanmushi. Very colourful! Of all dishes in the set, my favourite has to be the egg omelette with mentaiko sauce! It has a layered texture, very satisfying when you chew it, and the slightly sweet flavour matches so well with the creamy mentaiko sauce! It's so much going on in the mouthful. The sashimi is fresh, and the natural seafood sweetness is tasty. Chawanmushi might not have as much seafood as I wish, but still, the silky texture of the steamed egg is pleasantly good. There are a few pieces of flavourful chicken at the bottom of the chawanmushi. Lovely taste. Shokado set B ($21.90), on the other hand, consists of a bowl of warm handmade soba with corn and beancurd skin, salmon in ginger sauce, prawn salad with tartar sauce, green mussel topped with miso paste, and the chawanmushi. I really enjoy eating the warm soba! The broth is simple and light, only had a hint of shoyu flavour, but good enough as in you get to taste the grain fragrant of the soba. The texture of the soba is very good too, not soggy at all. Love it! Salmon in ginger sauce is surprisingly good. The skin of the salmon is crisp, and the ginger sauce is slightly sweet with a hint of ginger flavour, very appetizing! Each set comes with a serving of dessert of the day, which is the green tea mochi. The chewy texture glutinous pieces has a rich green tea flavour, and a dash of finely grated peanuts coated outside. Taste quite bland I reckon. Not a fans of it. continue reading

Shimbashi Soba is a Japanese restaurant, located at Nex, selling Japanese food, mainly soba, handmade by professional soba masters.The ambiance was great. They have the Japanese feel.Service was fine as well. Friendly and jovial, pretty staffs Salmon Don Set. $17.90 + 10% service charge ($1.70) + 7% GST ($1.38) = $21.05The Salmon Don Set consists of:A small plate of chilled or warmed sobaA small bowl of sushi rice topped with salmon and Japanese yamFried tofuTwo slices of orangeSalmon Rice with Japanese Yam Topping (7.5/10)For me, I don't like the yam topping because it tasted so weird and sticky. So if I eat there again next time, I will tell the waiter that I don't want the topping. The salmon was fresh and tasty though. Love it because I'm a salmon lover!Chilled Soba (9/10)THIS CHILLED SOBA IS SUPER YUMMY. OMG. The soba sauce was very tasty. Quite salty but not that salty, which went well with the soba. The BEST PART was, the SOBA WAS SUPER SPRINGY AND CHEWYYYYYY. Best soba I'd ever ate!!!Friend Tofu (5.5/10)Tasted like normal Chinese fried tofu but I love the katsuobushi topping!Orange (5.5/10)Fresh orange! Perfect for digestion after a full meal.May come back again, occasionally, for celebrations only because the price is not that cheap. Ambiance is very Japanese. The service is very satisfying continue reading
