Visited Manpuku at Tampines One for lunch when I was in the Far East (because, while trying to find Simpang Bedok, we turned the wrong way and ended up there instead). My very insipid Udon from Toku Toku Udon stall, which serves handmade udon. Had a much better chilled udon set here the last time. Didn't feel like eating tempura or cold udon that day. It's essentially something like oyako don (cooked chicken with egg on top of rice), just that it's served in udon soup. The egg was okay, cos it was flavoured with some sauce, but the pieces of chicken breast were quite hard and tasteless. Then again, it's $6.50 so I shouldn't be complaining too much. Saving grace for my lunch - $1 green tea ice cream cone. Not as creamy as I would have liked it, but the green tea taste was distinct. For $1, it's a nice way to end off my meal, since I don't like the fruit tarts at Manpuku.
Also had a $1 cup of Gryphon tea cos my friend got a fruit tart from Fruit Paradise. Of course, being the boring person that I am, I went with my usual Pearl of the Orient, which has rose petals.
Shall have Aoba ramen instead if I ever go back to Manpuku.
