20 Oct 07: Me and Daphne were initially drawn to this restaurant in Marina Square because of its attractive ice-cream and so decided to have dinner here as well.
Sabo Style Chicken Teriyaki Bento: 7/10
I have to admit I'm not very adventurous when it comes to Japanese food, so I stuck to something safe like Chicken Teriyaki. Initially I thought Azabu was generous, judging by the size and depth of the bento box, only to realise seconds later that the food occupies only half the height heh.
The chicken was how I like it, roasted and sweet. The rice and egg however, whether intentionally or not, was quite cold and dry, which explains for the dish's low marks. It would have been better if there was more teriyaki sauce to mix with the rice.
Udon Noodle with Tempura: 7.9/10
Daphne had this because she fancies her udon and ramen. She likes the soup very much but found the udon a tad bit chewy.
Strawberry Sundae: 9/10
We decided to share a dessert, and initially I wanted the Red Bean Paste Sundae. Daphne however was more interested in something fruity, and so I gave in. Turns out that the fresh fruits and smooth vanilla ice-cream was worth the try, and the addition of other fruits than just strawberry makes the sundae not only aesthetically pleasing in colour, but also a sweet mix of taste.
If you're curious, here's a peek at the dessert page of the menu!
Good. The waitresses who attended to us were very attentive and constantly on the lookout for drinks refill and new orders.
About $40 for everything, so it's quite alright. Other than the dessert, I might actually say I prefer Sakae Sushi's rice sets, but Daphne likes the Udon here better. Must be the soup.
6 Raffles Boulevard #02-170 / 171 Marina Square
I wanna try the Red Bean Paste Sundae! Note: Kitchen Mogu-Mogu at Far East Orchard, a Japanese eatery that has opened recently, was said to have something similar, and at a much cheaper price of $3.90. Guess I should try both soon!
