Located in the food court amongst many other restaurants, we decided to try out Saboten. I was immediately drawn into the plastic models that showed each menu set, compared to the not-so appealing photos of food that other restaurants were showcasing. Ahh…love the plastic menus…makes me feel like I’m back in Japan…
Anyways, I decided to get the #10 Loin Katsu Curry $8.25. The deep fried pork cutlet was very crispy and the curry was really good. Ah, also reminds me of Japan… It was quite filling. Miso was authentic, though a bit salty for me and no huge tofu or negi pieces like the ones in the plastic model. But nice addition of pickles which goes well with the rice.
Sheepie had the #4 Saboten set $8.95 where there was tartar sauce – which I think is added for Westerners…and indeed, Sheepie liked it more than the traditional sauce. He complimented that the miso soup was good, and he rarely says that – so it must be a good thing
I was very surprised at the very poor rating on Urbanspoon. The service was ok, the timing was alright, prices were fair and the food was pretty decent for a food court.
Would dine here again if we were going to eat at the food court in Aberdeen mall.
