Went to Waraku, Japanese Casual Dining. Besides the Japanese Casual Dining, Waraku also owns Pasta De Waraku, Mr Curry and Cafe De Waraku! First visited Waraku Japanese Casual Dining quite a long time ago (1-2years back) and quite like it. After that went to Paste De Waraku and its also nice.
Decided to pay this place (Waraku Japanese Casual Dining) at Marina Square a visit during weekday lunch as there is a lunch menu. Take a look at the lunch menu below.
Ordered the Ramen Set C, $13.80. It comes with free drink and choice of soup can be pork, shoyu or shio.
Here’s the set. The bowl is way too big. The ramen and soup did not even filled 1/4 of the bowl! No idea why they used such a big bowl, as it totally make the portion look so small/little.
A close up inside the bowl. Can’t help but be disappointed. 1 piece of seaweed, 1 piece of pork the rest is all ramen and soup. Wish that more ingredients were given to accompany the ramen. The pork was lined with fat, not much meat at all. I am not an expert in ramen and japanese soup, but the ramen and soup were not bad, similar standard as Tampopo.
My only comment about the sushi is that the rice is not compact. The sushi tends to break off and crumple. I wonder is it because its a set lunch, hence the items are way below the waraku’s standard that I recall. If that is the case, they should just take off the lunch set.
After adding taxes and service charge, the bill for two $13.80 ramen set add up to $32.49.
