i finally decided and got a chance to get out of the mall for lunch, so i met nat and had our long awaited shimbashi soba at paragon. after reading up on all the reviews, we pretty much knew what we were getting ourselves into; some very good soba.

so nat had the seiro tempura while i had the lunch set, which included sides of salmon sashimi, soft shell crab, teriyaki chicken, and a slice of watermelon. both of us had our soba chilled, which is probably the best way to have your soba. we got a little tip from their placemats on the art of eating soba, so nat did a little demonstration when the food arrived.

educational placemats heh :/
