Sun with Moon: heavenly dining?

with SJX and CC

Sun with Moon is one of the modern Japanese diners and very popular in Singapore. The place seems to be perpetually buzzing with activity. I have eaten at the Wheelock Place branch several times, and each time came away fairly impressed with the efficiency of the service, and the quality of the food.

We had three set meals for lunch.

First I had the Ramen sushi set:



This came with a rather interesting bowl of ramen.



A thick broth drowns the noodles (more about this later), and semi-floating in it is a thick slice of braised pork, and half a seasoned egg. And a knob of butter adorns the bowl.



Stir the bowl and it reveals the noodles...this was quite an interesting noodle...I am unable to find a reference from my usual consult site at rameniac.com as to the origins of the noodles. It looks and indeed tastes a little like the chinese yellow kee noodles.

But it went very well with the pork bone soup, and the braised pork belly was gorgeous. The egg was nice, but not as good as Tampopo's where although the outside of the egg is totally seasoned and cooked, the inside is slightly runny. In this Sun with Moon version, the egg is cooked through.






The accompanying sushi is rather good, but not top grade. It was sufficiently fresh, and tasty.

The set also came with a small pot of chawan mushi, which I found ok, but ordinary.

CC had the sushi roll with unagi...



This was a mix of regular sushi rice and fish rolled inside a piece of seaweed and also reverse rolled with fish inside, and rice on the outside...like a California roll.



SJX had the same ramen as I did, and the same sushi roll as CC.

Overall, a satisfying meal, as usual at Sun with Moon. High quality ingredients and well cooked and presented. Certainly one of the better Japanese restaurants in Singapore. The food is decent, service excellent. The ambience is cheerful. Nice.

The unagi looked quite appetizing, soft, creamy, and totally smothered with teriyaki sauce.
