Ichiban Boshi, Great World City

We were getting some last-minute groceries at the Cold Storage at Great world City when we popped in to Ichiban Boshi for a light bite. The cooked food at this mass-market, mid-priced Japanese chain isnt' top notch, but it's pretty decent. And this branch at Great World City is probably the best of the chain. During peak dining hours, there's always a line of hungry diners waiting to get into the casual restaurant.

The Chicken Pirikara Udon ($11.90), a claypot laden with fried chicken pieces, smooth beancurd cubes, cabbage, shitake, enoki and chewy udon are topped with an egg in a garlicky spicy broth.

The Dobinmushi ($7.90), teapot of dashi stock flavoured with shrimp, chicken and root vegetables, is delicate but rich in depth.

A wedge of lime helps brighten the sweet broth.

the novena one was awful! I had their teapot soup as well, and it was just terrible. this one at great world is much much better.
