Pimp My Salad
Time Out says
This vibrant Singapore-hailing eatery changes everything you thought you knew about salad
If it’s not the house and disco tunes pumping in the background that catches your attention, then it’s the enticing variety of food displayed at the counter. Singapore-born Pimp My Salad, run by the team behind Charoenkrung brunch spot Sarnies (another Singaporean brand), will make you rethink how a salad should look and taste—and it doesn’t involve just a bunch of mixed greens and sugary dressing.
Here, you can put together your own healthy combination based on your dietary preferences. Each serving is prepared from scratch and comes in hefty portions. But what makes Pimp My Salad really stand out are their hot food options. Proteins, from cured and smoked salmon (B130) to sous vide rump steak (B120) to coconut and kaffir lime chicken (B80), are grilled on wood in an open-fire pit and can be mixed with sides of your choice, including cayenne grilled corn with paprika and lime (B35), baked falafels (B50/two pieces), miso-braised fennel (B30) or spiced, herbed quinoa (B60).
But it won’t be a real salad place without cold offerings. At Pimp My Salad, cold options include chickpea larb salad (B50), beetroot and pumpkin seed hummus (B35), egg salad with dill pickles (B45), or buckwheat soba (B30). If too many choices are getting you in a tizzy, play it safe and order one of the many drool-worthy, pre-made bowls such as Cool Gai (B215), which mixes coconut chicken with kaffir lime, chickpea larb salad, sautéed mushrooms, brown rice and nam jim jaew (Thai chili sauce) mayonnaise; or Hula Hula Tuna (B350), which has tuna poke, smashed avocado, pickled daikon and carrots, kimchi, and brown rice sprinkled with furikake (dry Japanese seasoning).
Early risers will want to come to pimp their very own breakfast salad. We recommend putting together house-made grilled focaccia (B30), smoked thick-cut bacon (B85), smashed avocado (B100) and runny fried eggs (B50). Selections for sweet tooths are also available. We can’t stop raving about the juicy flamed pineapple (B30) and the ultra-creamy coconut yogurt (B65). Both are good on their own or with Pimp My Salad’s homemade granola (B100). The Nutty Acai Bowl (B280), an indulgent mix of soft-serve acai, flamed banana, coconut, house-made cashew nut butter, granola, and raw vegan brownie, is also an awesome way to end your meal—or start your day.
Get your caffeine fix with Sarnies’ signature iced coconut long black (B120) or Pimp’s own coconut coffee frappe (B120).
