Approx 3-4mins walk from either Raffles Place or Telok Ayer MRT Station Crowded at lunch. We had to wait around to get a seat. Most people had takeouts instead, to avoid the wait. Choosing my meats! I love my red meats. Seared and marinated Tuna, ready to be put into the bowl. Let's Eat!
Black Cold Brew ($7) The black brew tasted alright. It didn't exactly impress, and I only realised that the White cold brew seemed to be the popular choice around here. Totally regretted not trying it out.
El Hibaro ($16) I had mine El Hibaro style. Striploin with salsa verde, charred veggies, wafu tomato and bean sprout salad on white sushi rice. Just that, instead of the white sushi rice, I changed it to quinoa instead! It was so filling, just filled me up for a good couple of hours. I honestly didn't even think of snacking in the afternoon.
Make your own bowl ($16) If you don't wish to get any from their suggested bowls, you can choose to make your own too. Here's how it works, for $16, get 1 grain, 1 protein, 1 hot veg, 2 cold veggies, 1 sauce and 1 topping.
I had my meal with a friend and she had the quinoa, roasted nuts mix, apple kimchi, steak, cucumber, pickles and mushrooms! Can I just say, the apple kimchi is refreshing!
The best bit: The way it fills me up, such that I didn't feel like snacking. My El hibaro bowl tasted awesome healthy, too.
The worst bit: The price. It was pretty steep. The notion that "healthy = overpriced" is so overrated.
