The Tom Yum variant introduced as a new year special is a daring move by Kokomo. Giving up my favourite Spicy Mazesoba was another daring sacrifice, but I’m so glad I did. This Tom Yum Version infuses certain elements of the Thai iconic flavour which needs no introduction, without compromising the key elements of Mazesoba which makes it so enjoyable. You will find instead of the usually spring onion and chive, a lot more additional ingredients such as lemon grass, chopped tomato, julienned cucumber and of course chopped pikinu (chilli padi). What makes it Tom Yum is that the minced pork is infused a Tom Yum seasoning. Not forgetting the wedge of lime that brings a really refreshing twist to this equally enjoyable variant.

Priced at S$12.80, I was told by the waitress that the difference between their Cheese Maze-Soba and Tokyo Maze-Soba lied on that slice of flame-torched cheese that blanketed the centre part of the bowl, and to be honest that slice of cheese that did not melt became quite a bothersome bit in the dish.

Although diners could still get to choose between a spicy or non-spicy version within each item, I thought that had not been for the thick Ramen noodles, the degree of saltiness to this dry noodles might be skewed to the high side (maybe trying to demonstrate some authentic Japanese flavours here). And that was when the spoonful of rice (Oimeshi) would come in: either to pick up the leftover sauce from the bowl after the noodles were consumed, or just to eat as it is to cleanse the palate a little with the natural sweetness from the rice.

The spiciness level was just right as springy soba noodles soaked up the flavors of the specially made tom yam sauce. Loaded with chives, spring onions, tomato, cucumber and a runny lava egg!
.
The clear Kokoro Soba//Ramen Soup (S$13.80) was just as popular,with the chicken broth boiled for hours and topped with tender char siew slices, bamboo shoots, runny lava egg, etc. Loving how robust the soup tasted.
.
Go for the Red Kokoro Soba//Ramen Soup (S$13.80) if you would rather a fiery broth and Kids’ Meal (S$9.80) is available too!
