Cute Oden Stall With $6 Customisable Ramen & Udon Bowls Found At Jurong Point
There are 10 types of oden ingredients to choose from.
In Japan, oden is a classic cold weather comfort dish. Akin to Japanese-style ‘yong tau foo’, the one-pot dish features ingredients like daikon, savoury konjac, fish cakes and eggs simmered in soy sauce-based dashi broth.
Usually sold at little stalls and convenience stores, the oden is displayed in a large grid pot, where customers can choose their desired ingredients to go in a bowl with a helping of hot broth and a carb like udon or ramen.
Despite the fact that it’s popular and easy to prepare (just throw the ingredients into broth and leave them to cook), oden stalls are not commonly found in Singapore. Don Don Donki briefly offered an oden concept, though that has since quietly disappeared from its mobile food halls.
But recently, 8days.sg stumbled upon an oden stall called Oden & Men (men means noodles in Japanese) at Jurong Point’s Shokutsu Ten Japanese food street, which serves a variety of oden goodies at $1.20 each.
