くろ in Healthy Soba IKI

Healthy Soba IKI, One Raffles Place

Healthy Soba IKI has some new black stuff on their menu. If you hadn't realized, we've been having soba here a number of times in the past year. Here're the links to our previous visits. ( )

Healthy Soba IKI, squid in squid ink

There's squid in squid ink as a starter/side dish. This was very good. The sauce had the rich sweetness/umami of the ink while the rings of squid were very tender. Tender like those we had at Ink-redible Calamari.

Healthy Soba IKI, black sesame soba

This month's soba was in a kurogoma and kurozu broth. The broth had a creaminess like a less viscous black sesame paste paired with an appetizing tanginess from the black vinegar.

There were some shredded chicken an artichokes in the bowl as well. I liked the broth enough that I drank it all up after the soba.

Healthy Soba IKI, mini kaisen don

Didn't want to let the squid ink gravy go to waste because it had so much delicious-ness so we used it as a dip for the salmon/tuna in their mini kaisen don.
