I was doing some shopping with my husband in Paragon today when we decided to eat in one of our favorite soba places - Shimbashi Soba. Service in this restaurant is extremely fast so this was ideal for a quick bite. Shimbashi Soba serves fresh handmade soba noodles, and they pride themselves in making the noodles from scratch in the restaurant itself.
I ordered my staple dish which was the Tenchirashi Soba (SGD 17.80). This is a chilled noodle with tempura and poached egg. The tempura is a mixture of prawn, mushroom (I think it was enoki mushroom but I may be wrong), and other vegetables. I am a big fan of tempura so this was an instant fave. I love the fried mushrooms paired with the yummy soba sauce. I really like this dish but it is quite heavy so you need to be extra hungry to finish this up!

My husband also ordered a chilled soba - the Ume Ten Oroshi Soba (SGD 18.80). The noodles are topped with grated radish, japanese plum, and wild vegetables. They serve prawn tempura on the side. This dish is a bit simpler and not as heavy as my order. My husband says it was very refreshing and he finished up his plate rather quickly too, which I take as a good sign.

For you japanese noodle lovers out there, I recommend you try out Shimbashi Soba at Paragon. There is a lot of variety in their menu for those who fancy other types of soba- they have over 2 dozen choices of meat/ vegetable/ soba combinations which can be served either warm or chilled. I personally like chilled noodle, but I think the warm soba is more popular. So you guys can give that a try too if warm noodles are more your preference.
