"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Nabeyaki Udon

Travelled to Novena for my violin class. Hadn’t had lunch, and had craving for hot hot stuff. There was a Korean restaurant beside, but no suitable food on the menu for 1 person. So entered this Japanese restaurant. Looked very posh on the outside and interior. Thought it’s gonna be super expensive, but came out to be ok.

Surprisingly, the udon texture was good. It wasn’t too soft and bland. It was chewy and tasted really really good. Just fantastic for a hot stuff craving. The soup was not too salty and the claypot kept the udon hot for a long period of time. The portion was good for one person. While eating, this thing suddenly came:

Tempura Prawn

Tempura Prawn

HAHA! I forgot there’s tempura prawn with the udon! The appearance looks good right? But when I bite into it, the prawn was a little too over-coated with tempura flour, and there were soft and meshy parts. In the end I peeled off the flour and ate the prawn. Even so, the prawn didn’t taste like the freshest prawn.

The other items on the menu were expensive, especially their sushi. Mine cost $13. The appetizer – tuna with mayo was free! Green tea was free! But you have to pay for service charge and GST. Hence my total bill was $15.30.
