I finally got to catch up with *N after so long, and ironically we went to a Japanese Restaurant (for the first time) near my workplace only to discover that they have a branch near our places of residence as well. Anyway, the selected venue was Kotobuki Japanese Restaurant, furnished in good old Japanese fashion.
I started with a Hot Yuzu Tea (SGD$5.00), something that is an all-time favorite.
For mains, a bowl of Miso Soup is served alongside the noodle or rice dish, a good start to cleanse and prep the palate.
*N chose the Yaki Udon (SGD$14.00), also known as pan-fried udon noodles, laden with shrimps and omelet; fried in good texture so that the udon noodles remained springy and well-oiled yet not greasy. Flavour was absolute, hence bringing surprise to the fact that such a deceptively-looking dish could be that tasty. No wonder the Japanese lady sitting beside *N also ordered the same item.
I decided to go for the Sashimi Don (SGD$24.00), assorted raw fish in rice bowl. I love the bouncy, juicy and chewy thick slices of seafood here. Nothing perks my day more than a good mix of sashimi that retains its textures and entices the eater with its pristine flavour. The serving was generous and I appreciated that as well.
