Newly-opened Bamboo Bowls in Far East Square is admittedly bringing something new to the table. For one, their lineup of renowned chefs has us impressed. It’s running on culinary powerhouses, familiar household names like Bjorn Shen of Artichoke and Justin Hammond of Neon Pigeon.They’ve even got Mano Thevar in their crew – and his modern Indian restaurant was recently listed as #92 on Asia’s Top Restaurants.
But name-dropping aside, these Asian bowls are also right up our alley for a quick lunch – intended as wholesome fuel to get you through the work day. It's a menu of eight bowls, representing the flavours of Singapore, Sichuan, Saigon, Bangkok, Bali, Tokyo, Mumbai, and Seoul. Our easy favourite? Thevar’s Bombay Bowl, hands down. This plant-based, organic bowl draws inspiration from Indian street snacks like chana dal and pumpkin vada. Add on spiced lamb kofta ($5), and you’ve got a nutritious meal without an impending food coma.
