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.

What to do when you’re hungry, especially in the middle of the night or just after a late night movie? I’m sure you will not have any difficulties here in Singapore especially at the northern eastern part of it. There are tons of yummy foods as well for supper crawlers.
I am fortunate to be able to enjoy such great foods around my area and I am glad that they are still around after so many years. Many can’t survived due the to the handing over to the next generation as they try to re-create and modernised their food and their culture.
Right here along Serangoon Road, this is one place that even people from the west of Singapore would know about and needs no introduction. SO if you have yet to try this, please do come down and brings more money ya!
Nasi Lemak (a Malay dish, coconut and pandan fragrant rice served with a hot spicy sauce (sambal), and usually include various garnishes, including fresh cucumber slices, small fried anchovies (ikan bilis), roasted peanuts, and hard-boiled or fried egg. Punggol Nasi Lemak serves yet a slightly different way (I would say its more towards the chinese style) where they offer a wide variety of dishes for you to mix and match with the yummy rice.
Almost every evening and night, you will see queues forming up in an orderly manner people ordering packing the orders for their families or collecting huge trays of food as they enjoy the delicious food at the coffeeshop. Some of the side dishes available are chicken wings, vegetable curry, fried long beans, fried sotong balls and otak. I must say the chicken wings or drumsticks is a must have when you’re here. I love their homemade sambal chilli and the fresh crunchy cucumbers as I always ask for more (ya sometimes they would grumble that I take too much of it :P)
So move your butt and come down to this yummy place and I guarantee you that you will love the food here! Just to share that if you’re a big eater (even for supper), please ask for additional of rice and the portions of the foods served might not be a lot. The other thing to note is that the prices of the food is kind of expensive comparing to the amount given. Other than that, I do love to come here once in awhile to have my yummy drumsticks! Nomnomnom~~

Just when I was about to post this article, I found out that there is another article on this lovely dish being posted. So I thought hmmm, should I post it as well or should I just leave it and wait for awhile. Hell no! I’m not going to wait anymore (actually I had been hesitating to post it for about 5 days) I want to share with you this lovely tea time snack. You find this everywhere when you’re young, at getai (literally song stage) (Simplified Chinese: 歌台), is a usually boisterous live stage performance held during the Ghost Festival and very popular in the 80s
Hougang Muah Chee (Hougang 6 Miles Famous Muah Chee as what many remember them as) is the ONLY one that I would crave for and guess what? They have a stall by themselves selling mainly Muah Chee and some Kuehs. The Muah Chee (a traditional snack made of glutinous rice, usually mixed with crushed peanuts and sugar.) here is very soft and smells heavenly just by itself as the sesame oil in it is fresh.
Making of this snack is not as easy as you think as it requires great skills and experience to achieve such texture and preventing it from hardening. So as I was saying, the typical Muah Chees are mixed with peanuts and sugar. But this, they come with heavenly fragrant black sesame flavour. and if you’re someone like me who can’t decide what to have, the traditional or the creative traditional, you can choose both which I always do lol.
From the pictures, you also can taste the fragrant peanut and black sesame. Trust me you have to come to try it for yourself! There are 3 sizes for you to choose from and I am sure you know which size I go for every single time. Small: $2.50 Medium: $3.50 Large: $5.00
Hop on over to HDB Hub @Toa Payoh (Opening Hours: 1200hrs-2200hrs). B1 Foodcourt and walk all the walk to the end of the foodcourt and you will see them! Try it out and let me know which flavour suits you best! Enjoy the Muah Chees! Oh did I say its self service hor, don't order and walk away ya~ :)
