Abura Soba is a new soba joint at Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) and it occupies two levels on a shophouse. The place is decorated simply with pictures of Japanese characters having a good bowl of soba/ramen.
Abura Soba serve both soba and ramen options and we ordered soba. The soba served to us looked like ramen but the waitresses assured us that that were soba on the table. I am just confused if this is soba, how would the ramen look like.
Buta Miso Soba, 55 800RP
Anyway, this was the bowl I ordered, the Buta Miso Soba. The soba obviously was ramen texture equivalent, and it was coated in shoyu sauce, miso tare and oil so that it gives off a tasteful flavor and also so that it won’t dry out. My main protein was few slices of roasted pork, carefully cooked and skillfully caramelized.
Gyuniku Teriyaki Soba, 75 800RP
The Gyuniku (beef meat) was served in teriyaki sauce, albeit undone leaving it chewy and difficult to swallow. The meat was an Australian sirloin, a waste of a perfectly good meat that it wasn’t cooked on point.
This place has good service. Don’t forget to try out the cookie cup where you can fill a flavored milk with it. It looks good and I am definitely going for that the next time round.
