This Japanese restaurant at Forum The Shopping Mall has been making the rounds on instagram for its "flying" noodles.
Hana Restaurant's creative director Pearlyn Tan, 25, says it can sell more than 100 portions a day of the flying noodles. They were introduced a month ago and have captured plenty of attention on social media.
The options are flying salted egg yolk udon, flying cha soba with spam maki, and flying truffle somen with ikura and sakura ebi.
Ms Tan says: "We were thinking of ways to encourage our customers to dip the somen in the special truffle sauce, instead of having it premixed because the somen can get soft very quickly.
"Someone came up with the idea of keeping the noodles suspended so the customer takes only what he wants, hence flying noodles were born."
Indeed, the eye-catching noodles have been a hit with diners.
Student Sabrina Lim, 22, says: "I saw photos and videos of the flying noodles online and had to try it. My favourite is the flying truffle somen as I love the fragrant truffle sauce. I could eat this every day."

Thailand's street noodle dish of yentafo may not be very popular in Singapore yet. This is likely to change once Yentafo Kruengsonge from Bangkok opens its first Singapore outlet at Cathay Cineleisure Orchard on Nov 1.
The dish has rice noodles in a light savoury broth, with a mildly sweet and spicy pink yentafo sauce made with fermented red tofu and cooked Thai red rice.
The brand was founded in 1999 and has 28 outlets in Bangkok and two in Laos.
In Singapore, four choices of yentafo are available, with flat noodles and pink sauce shipped from Bangkok. The Yentafo Kruengsonge soup (pictured) features flat rice noodles topped with ingredients such as fish ball, squid ball, fish ball with tofu, fried tofu, fried seasoned taro and black fungus mushroom.
A dry version is also available and diners can choose from three levels of spiciness.
Other noodle options include tom yam noodles (soup or dry), Thai clear soup noodles with fish balls, and dry noodles with fish balls. Prices range from $6.50 to $9.
The menu also features appetisers, rice dishes and desserts.
The brand's entry here is a collaboration with Minor Food Group Singapore. Yentafo Kruengsonge's next two outlets, to open within the year, will be at National University Hospital and Kallang Wave mall. Other brands under the group include the ThaiExpress chain of casual Thai restaurants and French bistro chain Poulet.
