Second time eating this. Abit gelat from the noodle and since i have tried it before also, it was underwhelming for me

When an eatery is confident enough to only sell 1 kind of food, chances are they do it really well. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Tucked on Level 1 of @payalebarsquare is Kajiken, also Singaporeโ€™s first dedicated dry ramen โ€œmaze sobaโ€ shop! ๐Ÿ˜Š Lots of choices here at Kajiken for you to choose from! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
.
If you exhibit traits of aboulomania, simply go for their Mazesoba with all toppings (U.P $17.30++, now $15.80++)! ๐Ÿ’• Comes with soba & free noodle upsize if youโ€™re a big-eater, this is quite a good deal! โœŒ๐ŸปโœŒ๐ŸปโœŒ๐Ÿป
.
Meat lovers are bound to enjoy the slices of pork char siew ๐Ÿ–, braised pork, & chicken karaage (deep-fried chicken) ๐Ÿ“. My favourite was the char siew, which was extremely succulent despite having quite a substantial thickness. ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค They just fell slightly short of having that melt-in-your-mouth texture as the cut used was rather lean but still extremely well-executed as I personally donโ€™t like fatty meats. ๐Ÿคฃ The pinkish slices even glistened under the light (like some smoked duck), evidence of its freshness & tenderness which was so delightful. ๐Ÿ’ฏ
.
Their braised pork was extremely savoury & well-marinated but naturally tougher due to the thick cut. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป While it could have been more tender, it certainly scored high on taste! โœ” Similarly, the chicken kaarage donned a crispy exterior fried to the perfect golden brown, while the interior remained soft & juicy. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ Pro-tip: separate the kaarage from the mazesoba immediately to retain its crisp! ๐Ÿ˜‰
.
The savoury seasoned lavier has a distinctive taste which mellows the โ€˜siapโ€™ taste of the spring onions ๐Ÿ’š, which gives a nice crunch together with the leek. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป When stirred, the springy dry noodles are generously coated with these ingredients, cohesively brought together by that perfectly runny soft-boiled egg ๐Ÿณ that lends a creamy & luscious mouthfeel! โคโคโค
.
Definitely worth a try or revisit!

Mazesoba can be explained as Japanese dry Ramen, which Maze means "to mix" and soba simply means noodles.
How to eat Mazesoba? First you mix everything for 20 seconds. Then add vinegar or chili oil, depending on your preferences. When you had finish eating, you can request for a small portion of rice to mix with the remaining sauce by mentioning โ€œOIMESHI!โ€ to their staff. They also offer free noodles upsize, so it's guarantee that you'll leave the restaurant with a happy stomach.

They have pretty affordable price too; Taiwan Mazesoba Nagoya Style ($12.80++) Original Mazesoba with Karaage ($15.80++) KAJIKEN Singapore is the first shop dedicated to Mazesoba in Singapore, and they are conveniently located at Paya Lebar Square #01-86.

Thanks @kajikenatpls for the lunch.

First time trying this at Bugis branch and definitely worth it! Shiok with you self add vinegar and chili oil to suit your strong taste.

My first time trying Japanese dry ramen and I wish I had tried it sooner!

Upon mixing thoroughly, the noodles were glistening with oil, the golden egg yolk and Kajikenโ€™s top secret sauce. The noodles itself was rich in flavour as I could taste a distinct blend of wheat that became accentuated with the addition of the sauce. Itโ€™s no wonder I slurped it all in an instant.

I had the mazesoba with all toppings that comes with an optional free upsize. The char siew was tender while the karaage was crisp. Iโ€™ve definitely fallen in love, for me, with a new Japanese dish.

Look at all that spring onion! There isn't any soup to steal the flavour.
