Mazesoba, literally translated as “mixed noodles” is a type of broth-less ramen, particularly popular during the hotter summer months.
So even though there is “soba” in its name, the dish is technically “ramen”.
Japan’s most popular and largest restaurant Mazesoba chain Menya Kokoro is located at has arrived Suntec City Mall Level 3, Eat at Seven.
The Mazesoba specialist has included 3 new bowls recently, which are the Spicy Sakura Ebi Maze-Soba, Tokyo Beef Maze-Soba, and Curry Beef Mazedon, and 2 new side dishes. Here are the recommended items from Menya Kokoro Singapore:
Spicy Sakura Ebi Maze-Soba ($13.80++)
Sweet, fresh sakura ebi and fried whitebait are all tossed together in a heady combination of spring onions, chives, XO sauce, bonito flakes, garlic, ground saba fish powder, signature minced meat sauce, onsen egg, and tobiko for a flavour-packed dish.
I enjoy the crunch of the sakura ebi. While some people could find this a tad spicy, it was manageable for me but the kick still sent some sweat trickling down.
Tokyo Beef Maze-Soba ($15.80++)
Signature chewy maze soba topped with tender savoury-sweet sliced beef, Kokoro’s signature minced meat sauce, flowy onsen egg, ground saba fish powder and garnish.
Give the bowl a good mix and toss before consumption.
The most appealing part is the richly favoured minced meat sauce, slow-cooked Japanese-style with a secret recipe.
This may remind some of ”Zha Jiang Noodles” with a hint of spice, with a good deal of crunch coming from the chopped vegetables.
Curry Beef Mazeon Don ($15.80++)
The Singapore exclusives uses 100% Japanese rice instead of noodles, and topped with Maze-Soba toppings.
Special rice flown straight in from Hokkaido and Niigata is used, polished only upon order to preserve the aroma. Known as the “King of Japanese Rice”, the fluffy short-grained rice is compatible with stronger and richer flavours like the Maze-Soba toppings.
With curry sauce specially made in-house, succulent beef slices, signature minced meat sauce, onsen egg and toppings on fragrant Japanese rice.
Mentai Tamagoyaki ($4.80++)
One of my new favourites, of Japanese rolled omelette deep fried, and drizzled with in-house mentai mayo sauce for a touch of creaminess meets spiciness.
Japanese Oden ($4.80++)
Comforting bowl of Oden with traditional ingredients such as chikuwa, fresh daikon, satsuma age, and konbu in a hearty bowl of shoyu-based dashi broth.
