Shimbaishi Soba

michelle highly recommend this place for dessert but chong and i decided to drop by to try out their soba ( right after that disappointing seafood platter )&(£^&*$T^*) and this time round we werent unlucky twice.

but we had to queue and chong hates to queue for anything (not even food)

it was a very busy night and extremely packed and luckily we didnt end up sitting right next to the queue (i hate people peering down at what i eat) .. with some very fragrant roasted green tea we were good to order and i ordered the unagi soba.

the noodles were firm to bite and were clearly handmade. the unagi kinda got even soggier inside the soup though..

this is Shokado A - Teriyaki Chicken, Salmon Sashimi, Soft Shell Crab Tempura, Fruit, Choice of Soba or udon (chilled). i don't quite like the idea of cold noodles but chong does as she eats hot soba at home alot. quite a wide variety of meats to go with the (rather bland) noodles. the teriyaki chicken was particularly tasty.

good place to come for a casual, no frills noodle craving but then again i can always get it fuss free and cheaper somewhere else, minus the horrendous queue and insane parking. will be back to try the tea time dessert promotion though.
