Déjà vu II

And so it seems like this is the month for repeat dining (click here for my previous déjà vu experience). I found myself back at Central Mall @ Clarke Quay for lunch today, sitting at a table facing the same view of the Singapore River, and facing the same dilemma of what to order at Waraku – you see, based on my preceding occurrence at their outlet in Orchard, everything in their menu looks delicious and reasonably priced. After a long deliberation, I finally decided on the Chirashi Sushi & Wakame Soba Set, or the Vinegared Rice topped with Fresh Raw Seafood and Thin Egg Slices, along with a bowl of Buckwheat Noodles Soup garnished with Seaweed.

Although the Soba was extraordinary lacklustre – as it tasted like any other instant noodles, but with a softer texture, the Chirashi was up to scratch. Not only was the presentation of the dish enthralling, the ingredients were fresh.

It was especially pure pleasure for the Large Reddish Salmon Roe to go with the rice – each bite produces an amazing explosion of saltiness (due to a method handed down from the Taisho Period (1912-1926) of using salt to preserve the salmon roe) – simply bringing me back to memories lane of my last Chirashi Bowl in David Jones Basement, Perth.
