“So what’s good here?”
“Want to try something different? Like Soba, Noodles.”
I had some time in between my viewing and decided to get lunch and coffee in Paya Lebar with a friend, and she decided to bring me to a decent Japanese restaurant.
The menu definitely looks enticing right away; with the free flow of miso soup and ice-cold barley, together with a free upsize of noodles. Now who could say no to such a value proposition? The noodles are in the range of $16, so most of the goodies are already priced in. But as a person who drinks a lot, it’s nice to have that unlimited refill option.
Food’s served! I like how the portion of the meat is really generous. Together with the two thick slices of char siew, the karage pieces felt more like a “weezing” instead of a “koffing.” Pardon my Pokémon reference, but I didn’t know any better on how to describe this now. The noodles are thick, chewy, and I like how you’ll definitely feel full after eating (perhaps this is me having my first meal of the day).
Oh, I’d forgotten about the complementary hard-boiled egg as well! You’ll get it together with the already-inside Onsen egg. I mashed up all of them, mixing it well before going for it. I may have lowkey regretted upsizing my noodles because the extra portion might be a bit too much for me to handle.
Compared to Genki, Kaijiken might become my less economical go-to when I’m feeling for a hot, warm, soupy soba together with an endless flow of miso and drinks!
