Healthy Soba IKI before the lunar new year with reds, tomatoes, oranges, wafu dressed burrata and what could be argueably construed as yu sheng

Healthy Soba IKI, One Raffles Place

Came back Healthy Soba IKI for a couple of their limited soba bowls. (十一十二, 十三)

Healthy Soba IKI, sashimi

They have sashimi sometimes. We've seen people order them. This was our first.

Healthy Soba IKI, avocado shirasu don

We managed to snag the last bowl of mini don for the day.

Healthy Soba IKI, burrata wafu dressing

That's burrata with wafu dressing - which from what I could tell contained olive oil and some shoyu. It's pretty good with the creaminess from the cheese. The thing that had never occured to me was that the milk component from the cheese took away most if not all of the heat away from the wasabi leaving it sweet. So wafu dressing, wasabi and burrata were a new combination of flavours for us which I thought was nice.

Healthy Soba IKI, lou hei soba

Lou hei soba - we wanted to try this when it was available last year but missed it. Those candied orange peel, smoked salmon and crushed peanuts basically made the dish. Pretty refreshing with the citrus flavours and light sweetness. 

Healthy Soba IKI, jewel tomato soba

I was curious about their jewel tomato soba which were flavoured with little beyond olive oil, dashi jelly, some shreds of shiso and toasted buckwheat. This plate of noodles tasted Japanese Italian. Tomatoes were sweet but not as sweet as I had imagined.
