Alright, we have just past by the Christmas and New Year festive period. Which means, we are more likely to have stuffed ourself silly and need a bit of respite before the Chinese New Year knocking in front of us. So if you feel like something healthy, low in calories or detoxing, you can consider DoSiRak. DoSiRak means lunch box in Korean. Set up by half-Korean, half-Singaporean brothers Edward and Eugene Chia in October 2014, DoSiRak re-introduces the healthier and modern version of age-old method of enjoying a traditional Korean lunch bowl usually comprising rice, a type of meat and a medley of vegetables before mixing in gochujang (Korean chilli sauce). If you are watching your weight, there is even a calories count on each mix and all the DoSiRak menu is less than 500 calories. DoSiRak also recognised by Health Promotion Board Singapore as Healthier Dining Partner. In DoSiRak, the lunch box is served in a look-a-like large size pint of ice cream container. The design of the container inspired from tiles normally used in Korea. The container are then filled up to 75% full to allow enough space to shake the ingredients. How about it, you get to play with your food and eat healthy at the same time. The ingredients in DoSiRak are prepared in the minimalist way. Vegetables are served raw or lightly blanched with minimum seasoning. Meat are cooked sous-vide to lock in the flavour. Best part, No MSG are used here, period. We started our tasting with Avocado sweet potato mix ($9.90). Ingredients include spinach, red cabbage, beansprouts, shittake, white radish. A normal menu will come with rice, however if want to skip the carbo, you can choose cauliflower rice ($3) as your base. At first, we tasted it without adding the gochujang. The ingredients tasted very natural. You can taste the sweetness of the sweet potato, a hint of bitterness from the spinach and red cabbage, together with the creaminess of avocado. The cauliflower rice has a similar texture to couscous, however it is lighter and fluffier compare to couscous. We finally decided to #ShakeItUp. So you pour gochujang in to the mix. The gochujang works well to bind all the ingredients together. It is thick, sweet and spicy with a hint of vinegar at the same time, which works wonderfully to arouse your appetite. Next up is the Pumpkin Tofu ($8.90). A white rice base combined with enoki mushrooms, spinach, white radish, black beans and purple cabbage. The vegetables are lightly seasoned and allows the ingredients to speak for itself. I like the pumpkin, tofu and black bean in this dish. The finale was Smoked Duck with Cold Noodle as a base. Yup, now we finally tried some meat protein. The vegetables was corn, carrot, cabbage and mushrooms. As the thin and springy noodle already seasoned, you can actually skip the gochujang in this dish. Overall, DoSiRak really provide a good healthy meal with no fuss. As a foodie, we do need some holistic food once in a while. By the way, in the month of January to March 2016, DoSiRak is collaborating with The Food Bank Singapore launching a campaign at their China Square Outlet and EU Bizhub East outlets. It is to help raise funds for equipment that will help feed the underprivileged in Singapore. For every meal sold, DoSiRak will pledge $1 to directly fund this Fresh Food Truck. If customers would like to make additional donation to the fund, they may do so with any amount over DoSiRak Counters, and DoSiRak will reward large donors with a complimentary NuHoney beverage.

DoSiRak is a healthier take on the traditional Korean lunch boxes called dosirak, which comprises of a well-balanced nutritious meal of rice, meat, and vegetables. The people at DoSiRak have teamed up with a nutritionist to make sure that each dorisak contains no more than 500 calories. They have also obtained a Healthier Choice Stamp by the Health Promotion Board! They have a Takeaway Joint located at China Square Central and offers Delivery Services as well!Here's their menu!Here are the Dosiraks I tried! Soy Sesame Chicken - $7.90(Slow cooked chicken breasts, carrots, lotus, eggs, red cabbage, spinach, white rice)Kimchi Tofu - $7.90(Kimchi Tofu, Japanese cucumber, White cabbage, Lotus, Black beans, Shitake mushroom, White rice) Salmon - $9.90(Cured fresh salmon, Eggs, Japanese cucumber, White cabbage, Black beans, Carrots, White rice) Spicy Chicken - $7.90(Slow cooked chicken breast, Bean sprouts, White cabbage, Shitake mushroom, Spinach, Onions, White rice)They are made to be super simple to consume!Just assemble rice or noodles with meat or tofu, and vegetables, add in the Korean paste, shake it up - and you have lunch! We also tried the Korean buckwheat noodles that came with the Salmon Dosirak, and it was a really refreshing change! My family was a big fan of the other Dosiraks because not only did they taste good, it was a healthy substitute from our usual meals. Best thing was that the ingredients used in each Dosirak really complemented one another. The paste used was the traditional Korean dressing which tasted something like those they use with Topokki (Korean rice cake) - a little sweet, yet spicy that made it really palatable. I would definitely recommend you to try it. It's great, especially when you're on the go or need something healthy to eat for lunch! Thank you DoSiRak SG and Andrea for the pleasant meal!

Dosirak - meaning 'Lunch Box' in Korean. Traditionally where mothers prepare for their children highly nutritious meals packed in a box.Here, Do.Si.Rak serves healthy Korean to-go meals.A small brightly lit shop with slightly more than a handful of seats available for dining in.Staff are friendly & patient in explaining while waiting for us to decide on our order.All the meals are packed into these specially designed containers.Choose from five different flavours, namely Beef Bulgogi, Soy Sesame Chicken, Kimchi Tofu, Salmon and Spicy Chicken which all comes with white rice. You can add S$1 to upgrade to whole-grain rice or Korean buckwheat noodles.Something worth noting, the meals in the menu are all under 500kcal. For the calories conscious.To enjoy the different textures and flavours, mix in their secret sauce (don't blend with fork & spoon), just put the cap on and SHAKE IT UP!Beef Bulgogi (S$8.90) add S$1 upgrade to Whole-Grain RiceSlow cooked beef chunks are tender. Mixed with the sauce and all makes this a tasty meal.Soy Sesame Chicken (S$7.90) add S$1 upgrade to Whole-Grain RiceSlow cooked chicken breast is not tough. Lotus is actually one of the item in this meal, unfortunately they ran out of it and was asked to choose another vegetable to replace it. Love the overall texture with the vegetables and stuff all shaken up but chicken seems a little bland.Salmon (S$9.90) add S$1 upgrade to Korean Buckwheat NoodlesCured salmon are fresh but the buckwheat noodles is slightly soggy. Other than that, this is rather delicious.It would be great if they offer lunch sets that includes a drink. continue reading
