This little hidden gem has some truly delightful fusion bowls, where you can get purple rice as a base!

My go-to is the Tofu Delight ($8.90) with hot purple rice. The tofus are always perfectly cooked - think agedashi tofu at your favourite Japanese restaurant, soft and lightly fried, with just the right amount of sauce. The purple rice here is amazingly tasty, seasoned with sesame seeds and furikake. All the bowls are cooked on the spot, which counts for all the freshness you taste. I like adding an Onsen egg (+$0.50) as well, cos they are done the proper way Onsen eggs should be.

This was a fulfilling meal that satisfied my clean and green cravings for the day :) 4 vegetables ($1 each) and a bowl of porridge ($0.50) came up to $4.50.

They have a wide array of choices here, but some of the my favourite ones include the Chye Poh omelette, Chap Chye, and soft spinach. The dishes are pretty fresh and tasty, cooked to the right degree to retain their softness, although they tend to be a bit oilier.

Took a gamble with this dish and it paid off :) The haloumi satisfied my craving so kudos to the chef, cos haloumi isn’t the easiest cheese to get right. Done badly it can be too hard, too rubbery, or oily - trust me, that has happened in my kitchen.

The fried haloumi was done well - crispy on outside yet soft on the inside, with the right amount of saltiness, and a good amount of stringiness. My only wish is that it could’ve been gooier.

The basil & mint leaves, Japanese cucumbers, lemon & olive oil dressing perfectly balance the saltiness of the haloumi cheese. Wasn’t a fan of the bread - strangely - since I am generally fond of Sarnies’ breads. But this still makes for a refreshing lunch on a sunny afternoon!

For affordable Italian pizzas, this is the place to go to :) Their pizza base is soft and fluffy (pretty bread-like) and most of their ingredients are pretty fresh & delicious. The sauce could be more flavourful - but hey for this price, I’ll take what I can get :)

As a lover of pancakes & waffles, this dish brings together the best of both so I don’t have to choose between them ;)

The batter is an organic gluten-free and wheat-free pancake mix, which comes close to your typical waffle base but with a familiar pancake-like softness and chewiness. But what’s more an amazing about this dish is the banana and mixed fruits compote - it’s caramelised just right so that it bursts with flavour when it touches your tongue. It’s so good on its own that you probably don’t even need to touch the agave syrup on the side.

Anyone who’s a pesto fan can tell you how hard it is to nail down the perfect pesto. The variations come from the use of different types of nuts (walnuts, cashew and even almonds) and combination of greens (basil, arugula, parsley).

This dish uses the classic basil pesto recipe which originated from Genoa, and it works. Sometimes simplicity is all you need :) Loved the unique spin on the dish with crumbled boiled potatoes and grilled cucumbers, which is well-blended with the pesto and goes surprisingly well with the other elements. Altogether, a pretty comforting dish.

Why yes, I would like to have my cake and eat it too ;)
