Shimbashi Soba's "Value Seiro"

Value Seiro

This was on Shimbashi Soba's current list of specials. It was just your everyday soba, but it came with a barrage of sauces and condiments, including some yuzu pepper and the goma tare that I like so much, as well as a warm sauce with a ramen-like layer of oil on top, which provided a soothingly tasty coating around the noodles.

The rather unattractively utilitarian name probably arises from the fact that it comes with an onigiri on the side. But to me, the bigger value here is actually another set that they offer. I can't remember the name, but it includes a generously sized flask of sake - enough for a decent buzz - as well as quite a few courses of food for a little over S$30 (US$24).
