I never thought much about this place which was known for its healthy rice bowls, as I felt it was overpriced Economy Rice (Cai Png 菜饭), until recently I saw a 3-course meal offered by Chop. At $25, the meal includes a starter, a choice of main and a dessert, which I felt was value for money. Only cash and NETS is accepted here.Ebisu (ala carte $18)Pan-seared Hokkaido Scallops, Mussels, Miso Butter Cream and ToastIt was served pipping hot. The seafood was covered in a sea of rich creamy flavourful gravy, which I wished for more.From the 4 choices of main, I selectedTsukiji (ala carte $16)Tuna tataki, asparagus & edamame, onsen egg, pickled cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, furikakeI selected Orzo as my choice of base. There were other choices such as Ninja Rice and Garden Greens. The orzo ( a form of short-cut pasta, shaped like a large grain of rice) was topped with a savoury gravy and quite tasty on its own. The onsen egg added a rich creamy layer to the orzo. The asparagus was soft and crunchy. The pickled cucumbers was tangy and crunchy, while the tuna was smooth and fresh.Fancy French (ala carte $16)Fig jam french toast drizzled in ume-boshi infused honey, fresh grapes, plums, homemade hazelnut butter.This dish had a 20 minute wait. It looked quite pretty. The fruits was fresh and juicy, the toast sliced easily although I wished that it could be crispier.Accompanied with Coconut Lemon Mint ($8)Fresh coconut juice, lemond wedges, mint leavesIt was basically fresh coconut juice, filling with thick coconut flesh. Refreshing, although a bit cheated by the fanciful name.Overall the food was delicious. Best come early as the place get crowded easily, and could get quite noisy after that. continue reading

Original review on http://www.nahmj.com/2016/04/26/ninja-bowl-duxton-road-tanjong-pagarNinja Bowl has taken over the defunct Department of Caffiene, DOC. It is literally taking over the entire cafe with minimal changes in the design, the furniture, fixture and so on. Except and of course the signage of the cafe are replaced.For those who have been to Department of Caffeine, DOC previously does not require any description. In case you have yet patronised them and they were closed, basically, very much industrial. Greens and flowers placed strategically to soften the feel.At Ninja Bowl, it has a 2 page menu. A page for food and a page of drink.For coffee, Ninja Bowls uses Smitten Coffee Bean with 50% Brazil Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza Natural and 50% Colombian La Joyerla Washed. I have a 6oz with milk ($4.50). It is a medium to low acidity cuppa with medium to full body and stone fruits and caramel and cocoa notes.For non-coffee drinker, one could turn to the Ginger Lemongrass ($7) light in both the ginger and lemongrass fragrance or Earl Grey ($7), Chamomile Citron ($7) or Citrus Mint ($7) for hot drinks. Cold drink option were cold-pressed fruit juice, iced chocolate and various concoction ranging from $6 to $8.It has the Ninja Bowls as its highlight. Each Ninja Bowl at either $14 or $16 has pre-determined ingredients and diners has 4 base option. Add $3 for Quinoa. Alternatively add $2 for Ninja Rice (mixed of brown and white jasmine rice), Orzo (pasta shaped in the form of rice) or Garden Greens.I tried the Genki ($16) with Quinoa ($3). In it consists of yaki unagi, onsen egg, pickled beets, beansprouts (seems like with sesame oil), roasted pumpkin. One get multi-flavours in a bowl with sourish, savoury and sweet senses. The beansprouts reminded me of Korean food. It is interesting that it is a blend of Korean and Japanese bowl.On the next section are the Brunch items. At this section, I observed that it uses similar ingredients from the Ninja Bowls for most of its dishes here. For something and something I don't usually order, I went for the Yogurt and Granola ($9). It is a bowl of relatively sweet granola and lots of fruits, mainly watermelon cubes, a few melon pieces, handful of blueberries and a wedge of passionfruit. Honey was added into the yogurt resulting in a even sweeter bowl. Milk was provided by the side.Ninja Bowl also offers 4 dishes of Bites, 3 Sandwiches option and Daily Cakes and Tarts.I was recommended by a service crew to try the Chocolate Tart. I went with the recommendation since I could decide. It has a nutella cream on a rich chocolate fudge sat on a thin tart base. This is certainly a must try for Chocolate lovers.Food served at Ninja Bowl is comforting and I do enjoyed. It has good variety and it provides free Wifi too. It seems the 2016 trend of cafe food is rice bowl. Though it is healthy and delish but I certainly hope not all new cafe will go into this direction.More reviews at http://www.nahmj.com/ continue reading
