NINJA BOWL

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - New Bites -

The own­ers of Chillax Café and Ba­bette Restau­rant & Bar – The As­tro­nauts Group – re­cently launched their third con­cept, Ninja Bowl, within the hip din­ing en­clave of Dux­ton Road.

Of­fer­ing a wide se­lec­tion of healthy and hearty bowls, din­ers can pick from eight dif­fer­ent choices such as, Noka (S$14) which of­fers a de­li­cious pro­tein of 24-hour braised beef cheeks, served with baby corn, Korean beansprouts, mixed nuts, on­sen egg and semi-dried toma­toes. Other op­tions in­clude Buto (S$14) and Genki (S$16). The for­mer com­prises torched pork belly (aburi cha shu), cherry toma­toes, on­sen egg, roasted pump­kin and ume-pick­led ap­ples, while the lat­ter con­sists grilled eel (yaki un­agi), roasted pump­kin, beansprouts, on­sen egg and pick­led beets. For those who re­quire some­thing hearty, they can choose to pad their bowls with a choice of carbs, such as ninja rice; a blend of vine­gared Ja­panese pearl rice and brown rice with sea­weed flakes, orzo pasta; a rice-shaped short-cut pasta tossed with honey, multi­grain mus­tard, miso and chilli or white quinoa. The rice and pasta will cost S$2 per por­tion, while the quinoa will set you back by an ad­di­tional S$3. Vege­tar­i­ans, too, will find some­thing on the menu – the Geisha (S$14) is a veg­gie-stacked bowl fea­tur­ing sweet, roasted pump­kin, fresh but­ton mush­rooms, bal­samic toma­toes, but­tered car­rots, an on­sen egg, and fu­rikake sea­son­ing. If you’re crav­ing some­thing sweet af­ter lunch, the Fancy French (S$16) com­pris­ing a thick-cut home­made bri­oche stuffed with a gen­er­ous help­ing of home­made fig jam, driz­zled with pick­led plum in­fused with honey, and topped with home­made hazel­nut but­ter, will surely hit the spot. ◆ 15 Dux­ton Road.
