Get Out!! is a bi-weekly video series where our hosts go out and discover new things around Singapore.
This week, Le En brings Marcus for some healthy Japanese soba with unexpected local flavours! Laksa soba anyone?
Singaporeans love our local delights — chicken rice and laksa probably chief among them. But what if we told you could find those flavours right here in a Japanese restaurant?
On this week’s episode of Get Out!!, our hosts Le En and Marcus took a walk around the CBD in search of laksa made with Japanese soba, and one version that tastes just like our very own chicken rice!
At Healthy Soba IKI, our humble hawker dishes are transformed into fusion cuisine, but the restaurant also offers a wide variety of traditional soba bowls as well, served both hot and cold.
The hand-made Japanese buckwheat noodles are said to be healthier than other types of noodles as it’s gluten-free and higher in protein.
Healthy Soba IKI was started by Chef Yusuke Noguchi, who said that he was surprised that when he first came to Singapore years ago, he saw lots of ramen shops, but hardly any restaurants serving soba.
