after almost a year hiatus from millenia walk, Saboten has once again opened its shutters where it all first started. The new outlet portrays a very japanese oriental interior which give the whole restaurant a very calming and peaceful feel. Came for a tasting as well as lunch to celebrate mother's day.
What I like about Saboten is the free flow of veges that comes with the set offerings.
The platter (5Hands)
We had the platter which was about $54 - pork belly and pork loin, the special fried red shrimp as well as the fried oyster. The pork offerings were my favourite, well fried and crispy, going well with the sauces on the table.
Oysters were average and it is because I am more of a fresh oyster fan than a fried one.
The prawn on the other hand exudes that crispy exterior yet sweet interior. Some felt it was a pity that the prawn was served fried, but yeah I am a fan.
Crab Cream Croquettes (4Hands)
Probably one of the more underrated dishes here at Saboten. Chunked towards the bottom of the menu, one might not spot the dish but it is one hell of a delicious treat.
if a platter is too much, Saboten menu also serves up ala carte offerings.
Curry Katsu (3Hands)
Their curry dish was average, nothing much to shout about. At almost $20 for this set, I felt it was a priced alittle on the high side.
Pork Katsudon (3Hands)
Again, nothing fantastic and very average. Similar to the curry Katsu, I found it to be a little pricey for something which I can get cheaper elsewhere.

overall review: shauneeie3.5hands. I have always advocated, the katsu here are one of the best around for the price. Reasonable and delicious, you don't get that clogged up oily feel after a meal. The pork loin and the crab cream croquettes has got to be the best item here. Normally I'd order a platter to share and its good for 3.
