Cook Mee

I have eaten the last few times I walked past Cook Mee at Raffles Exchange, and reminded myself to try this another day. It is by the same people behind Wheat  at B1 of One Raffles Place and Raffles City Shopping Centre, known for its Japanese-inspired soba noodles, brown rice and salad. There were a few people when I visited for late dinner, and more continued to stream in after. Ordered its $9.90 Soupermen as the dry tossed ramen comes with a separate bowl of spicy or non-spicy double-boiled chicken- and pork-based soup. I can choose ingredients for my soup and my choice was prawns and white clams over diced salmon, mussels and shredded chicken as well as edamame, mushroom and tofu (other choices are beansprouts, broccoli, cabbage, corn kernel, kimchi, leek and seaweed). The springy ramen were topped with beansprouts, shredded cucumber, sous vide egg and sesame seeds. Could neither rave about the bland soup and white clams nor fault the succulent prawns and mushrooms.

Loved the fragrant sesame seeds but found the edamame a tad bitter and regretted tossing the ramen with the egg. Should have just eaten the egg as-is. Other items on the menu are $9.90 MuscleMen  hebi-hiam chilli or non-spicy dry tossed ramen with choice of char siew pork, roast beef, salmon sashimi and salted egg fried chicken. And $9.90 pork belly, roast beef, salmon poké or tuna poké with red or Furikake pearl rice bowls. Light bites after 5pm include $3 Japanese curry fishball, $4 Brazil crispy fried chicken, crispy fried tofu with spicy wasabi mayonnaise or dry shrimp paste, seafood or vegetables gyoza and salted egg fried chicken, $5 ramen pork belly or roast beef chopsticks and oriental marinated topshell (spicy). Beer, whiskey and sake are also available. For a hearty breakfast (8-10.30am), check out its $4.90 set of ramen soup with pork belly and sous vide egg or house sandwich of chicken or pork with 2 sous vide eggs. Both come with coffee or tea, and the latter retails at $3.50 from 3pm to 5pm.
