Saboten at Aberdeen Mall

Saboten 勝博殿 on UrbanspoonLocated 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…

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.

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.
