Priced affordably at only S$38.80, the healthy and delicious yusheng caters up to 8 pax. It also features a generous medley of salmon, seasoned octopus, seaweed and jelly fish, crabstick strips, shredded egg and tobiko for a savoury note. The sushi gari (ginger), orange cubes and winter melon strips offer a refreshing taste, while the white and red carrot, purple cabbage, Japanese cucumber and Chinese crackers a crunchy bite. A special sesame sauce pulls all the ingredients together.
Besides this innovative offering, Fujisoba will also be launching the Girls’ Festival Special Set (S$19.80), meant to celebrate Hinamatsuri, or Dolls’ Day or Girls’ Day, a special occasion in Japan celebrated each year on March 3rd. It is a day to pray for the health and happiness of girls. The Japanese will display Hina-ningyō (ornamental dolls) resembling the Emperor, Empress, attendants and musicians in court dress of the Heian period. Doing so takes away the girls’ bad luck. Fujisoba will display these dolls as a form of blessing for its female customers.
The Girls’ Festival Special Set comprises two offerings and a Hinaarare snack: Chirashi Sushi, a traditional dish eaten on Hinamatsuri; and Hamaguri Soba. The Chirashi Sushi features fresh sliced salmon, a medley of carrot, shiitake mushroom, konjac and fried soy, as well as shredded egg, snap peas and tobiko on a bed of sweet vinegared rice. The Hamaguri Soba showcases two pieces of clam imported from Japan, perched atop a bed of al dente soba, all in moreish soup.
The yusheng will be available from 16 January to 28 February 2018. The Girls’ Festival Special Set will be available from 1 February to 31 March 2018.
Soba that is so good
Lauded as a soba specialist, Fujisoba makes its noodles in store every day to ensure absolute freshness. “Ni-Hachi” means “2:8 ratio”, which is the golden combination of wheat flour (20%) and buckwheat flour (80%) needed to make the perfect soba. Located in the heart of central business district — Tanjong Pagar — the restaurant doles out offerings at super affordable prices that office-goers will appreciate. The 82-seater restaurant uses buckwheat flour specially imported from a well-established milling factory in Japan. The flour is then kept in a warehouse with excellent temperature control to maintain the quality.
