Very very satisfied with my delicious Cold Ni-Hachi Tempura Soba, $20++ from Nadai Fuji Soba Ni-Hachi 名代富士そば at itadakimasu by Parco at 100AM! Feels as if I am back in Japan!
Nadai Fuji Soba Ni-Hachi 名代富士そば is one of the 7 Japanese Restaurants in this cluster on level 3 of 100AM. If you are still wondering where this cluster is, it is non other than beside the famous Keisuke Tori King Ramen who has its foothold in this part of Singapore and is one of the 7 restaurants in this cluster.
Menu and table setting
The weekly promotion consisting of hot/cold soba and a salmon don at only $18++! It comes with Japanese pickles, crispy sakura ebi and fresh cut fruits. Quite a steal but I had my eye on the tempura soba! ;p
History of Ni-Hachi.
Worth a read and good to know its authenticity! How did I miss it during my last Japan trip when it has been in Japan for 50 years and has 116 shops? 😛
Menu – Warm Soba
So simple and heart-warming! Variety ranges from the very simple hot Tanuki Soba to Hot Mentai Cream with prices from $11++ to $18++.
Menu – Warm Soba
Fancy some Japanese curry over your soba? They have it too!
Menu – Dry Soba
If you must have egg with your noodle, you can consider dry soba.
Menu – Dipping Soba and tempura
Menu – Cold Soba
Exactly what I came here for though I am more of a hot soba person! Maybe I have been converted by PB and my last Japan Trip 😉
Menu – Don
For peeps who must have rice, this is it.
Menu – Recommended Items are the Special truffles Dashi Maki Tamago with club Japanese Sauce ($15++) and Sauteed Sobagaki and Foie Gras with Kaeshi Sauce($17++)
Will try it the next round!

Basically side dishes that you can order to share.

Ooooh.. .looks good too but it is available only for dinner.

Serviette, wet towel and chopsticks on the table.
My col’s Hot Ebiten Buta Curry Nanban Soba, $24++.
It consists of sliced pork, spring onion, curry, dashi, shrimp tempura, snap peas, butter, soy sauce

Did not sight the snap peas though.
Steaming hot bowl of curry soba!
Stirring the piece of butter that came with the set into the noodles.
You really got to do this as it really increases the fragrance of the curry! Yumz!!!
The Cold Ni-Hachi Tempura Soba, $20++, that caught my eye!
Looks simple but this is one very filling meal with 8 pieces of tempura accompanying my soba!
Close up of the dipping sauce, spring onions and wasabi for my cold soba.
How I like it – All the greens in! 😉
The bowl containing the soba was really huge! The chopstick is used as a comparison but my photography skill may not be good enough to emphasis its size!
Close up of my buckwheat noodles!
The noodles were not too dry nor wet and I could pick them up properly to dip in the dipping sauce. The texture was just right and every bite was so delightful that I almost forgot I am in Singapore and started slurping them as I did in Japan! *embarassed*
The 8 pieces of tempura with my set.
The plate was a tad oily and for a moment, I was worried that the tempura will be overly oily too but my fears were unfounded.
There were 2 x shrimps tempura, 1 x chicken tempura, 1x kanikama (crab stick tempura) and
4 x vegetable tempura (I had orca, sweet corn, pumpkin and mushroom)
Succulent and meaty prawns
Very sweet sweet corn!
Crab stick tempura (pardon the fangs!) ;P
This is sooooooo sweet and yummy!
This is one chunk that I got a bit worried.
Fears unfounded again as the chicken was tender and juicy!
The cute little teapot of sobayu.
So pipping hot! Love it!
See how tiny the teapot for one person is? 🙂
For those of you who do not know, sobayu is the water that the soba noodles were cooked in and they were considered to be very nutritious. How it is drank – Pour it into the remainder of your dipping sauce and finish it to wrap up your meal. 😉

My sobayu with my dipping sauce.
Love the sweetness of the soya sauce here which makes my sobayu so drinkable! 🙂

Given the quality, $2 is not too much a price to pay for 😛
Overall, a very pleasant dinning experience with healthy and quality food! Would definitely come back everyday if my wallet permits! 😛 Sighted quite a few groups of Japanese executives having their lunch here which further validates the authenticity and quality of the soba 😉
