Does anyone remember that Mothership article from a while back promoting a small, humble Japanese eatery in Potong Pasir run by a lady who set it up because her daughter loves Japanese food? Well, Washoku Café is the eatery in that article.

Granted, the soft shell crab wafu pasta ($14.80 nett) wasn’t the most exceptional ever, but it was simple yet truly delicious. The meaty soft shell crabs are charmingly crisp on the outside, yet soft and tender on the inside.

The al dente pasta takes a dip in the savory shoyu broth that is sufficiently savory yet light on the palate. The tender enoki mushrooms have been cooked in the same shoyu broth in the plate, and provide a nice, well rounded earthiness to the plate.

Simple, yet so satisfying to the soul.
