With the Korean craze going on for the past few years, Japanese culture especially Japanese cuisine has still been a stronghold in Singapore. You can find at least one Japanese restaurant available in any malls across the sunny island.
Located at Wisma Atria, Japanese Food Town, Yomoda Soba is amongst a huge section of Japanese eateries and this newly-opened restaurant from Tokyo specialises in handmade Soba made on-site using 100% buckwheat flour from Japan. You can actually see a consistent flow of customers queuing up for their turn to try out their authentic soba.
I had a quick chat and understand that the soba are freshly made everyday, without any MSG. And they get the ingredients imported all the way from Japan.
Yomoda’s soba is made using the real center part of the buckwheat which gives the elegant fragrance when you eat it and has the pure white colour which otherwise also known as the White Sarashina Soba.
Their daily set meals are to die for! They have a huge variety to choose from: you can go for a set with Yomoda curry rice, Char Siu Don (roasted pork rice bowl)or Oayako Don (chicken & eggs rice bowl) or how about a Tendon to go with your soba? Vegetarians, don't worry! they have a vegetarian set with the famous soba just for you too!
One of the highlights is the Kirin Ichiban Beer promotion which is on going now. with just SGD$12 you can enjoy a pint of the smooth beer with Tako-wasabi (Octopus sashimi marinated in wasabi and soy sauce), deep fried chicken skin and a marinated boiled Japanese styled egg. Great sides to accompany the beer I must say!
I ordered the Tempura Seiro Soba and the Tendon set and I just pretty much slurp up the yummy soba after I took enough pictures of it!
Nice texture to it and you can really taste the fragrance from the soba it self and the dip, soba tsuyu with wasabi, enhances the taste even further. An overflowing bowl of Tendon where you have a mixture of vegetables like long beans, mushrooms, pumpkin and chicken tempura with a fresh ebi tempura.
You can enjoy a crispy tempura served immediately from the deep fryer when you order the Tempura Seiro Soba, and a flavourful tempura drizzled in Yomoda’s tempura sauce when you savour the Tendon set with soba. Both are great but I personally prefers the Tendon set.
Right now, you can enjoy Yomoda soba with their special set lunch during their weekday from 1130hrs till 1700hrs.
