Relief at Shimbashi Soba, Singapore

Tempura Seiro

After all that meat from Germany, I had to get something "light and clean," and Shimbashi Soba (290 Orchard Road, #B1-41, Paragon, 6735-9882) was the immediate source of relief. I correctly ordered the tempura seiro this time (I often make the mistake of ordering the tempura soba instead, which is hot instead of cold, and is one ho-hum dish that I can understand people yawning at). Those huge German portions from the past few days must have played tricks on me, as I had to order several extra portions of noodles tonight in order to get full.

Temchirashi Soba

Soba DengakuThey had a couple specials today, including a soba dengaku, which was almost like little glutinous mochi balls, but savory. One was topped with seaweed, another with melted cheese, and a third with miso, each of which got better and better. The cold temchirashi soba had a bunch of nice vegetables in tempura batter too. Anyway, this was just a much needed change of pace now that I'm back, that's all.

Yup, I totally agree. The hand-made soba at Shimbashi is simply so authentic. :)
