Recently my research about good Soba dishes in Singapore has been successful. Kajiken has proof me how good they are (after pay my visit for several times here).
Located in Tanjong Pagar exactly same building with Orchid Hotel, Kajiken is stand around CBD area. Limited capacity for only 30 people would increase the waiting time and boost up the queue especially on weekend. Good point here is even though small, they put a lot of Japanese design in accordance to bring back the original culture across the place.
If you are looking for the right starter, you should check out the Karaage (S$ 1.50). The chicken is simply crispy, salty and moist. I could say this one is absolutely authenthic and affordable.
Think about the main course, you should go with Mazesoba Nagoya Style (S$ 12.90). Nicely cooked soba topped with delicious minced pork and soft boiled egg along with a chop of spring onion and crispy seaweed. Once you try steering it, all of the aromas will be come out and it smell beyond delicious. So far this kind of soba is the most impressive one. Another good reason to love Japanese food is here. Kajiken signature dishes belong to this.
If you are looking for the other option of soba with high degree of complexity, then Zenbu Nose (S$ 15.80) by Kajiken is the right one. The soba texture and flavour is exactly the same with the previous one, the differences is located at the topping only. They add two slice of chasiu, one piece of karaage, one soft boiled egg, one crispy seaweed, and other fresh vegetables. Every single topping is definitely match to get paired with the soba. I could say the presentation has clearly refesent the whole flavour of it.
Anyway, they give a free flow of Cold Ocha. As the alternative, a well made beer, coca - cola, etc would be available now. Just choose which one suit you well to boost up your dining experience at Kajiken.
Kajiken is definitely stand out in terms of Japanese soba, karaage, etc. Two days in a row i visit this place, and i found consistency on this place. Indulge yourself all over again.
