I was looking forward to dinner on Friday because I got to meet my Seoul sisters, Emily and Hazel, and at the same time, try out the new dishes at Ninja Bowl.
Located at 15 Duxton Road, Ninja Bowl is a short walk away from Outram MRT station. It was my first time there (IKR I’m such a mountain tortoise) and I was very impressed by the food and friendly staff at Ninja Bowl.
Torinosu translates to mean “a bird’s nest” and is the one the appeals to me most since I love fried food. The nest of shrimp and vegetable tempura kakiage sits on top of the carbs and we broke the onsen egg that was on top and mixed everything together for the perfect indulgence. I guess Torinosu is a must-order if you are someone who loves fried food like I do.
Enjoy the tender and juicy smoked chicken leg confit with orzo pasta. I love the orzo pasta and in case you are not too sure what that is since it seldom appears on our Singapore menus, it is a form of short-cut pasta that is shaped like a grain of rice. I love its texture and it complements this dish completely. Comes with sides like onsen egg, cherry tomatoes, sauteed zucchinis, sauteed mushrooms, and covered with maple mustard glazed. Yummy.
$22 but worth the money because you get grass-fed marbled Australian tenderloin that is glazed with fragrant truffle leek butter. The beef is so tender and juicy and it partners yummy quinoa for carbs. A perfect combination since it comes together with baby corn, onsen egg, sauteed mushroom and sauteed cherry tomatoes.
Merry Melon $19
Please forgive my greedy face hahaha, but I mean, who can resist pretty and yummy desserts? Can you see that little flower right on top?
A twist to the usual French Toast that we often see, Merry Melon comes with fluffy brioche French toast, parma ham chips, mascarpone cheese, shiso and thyme-infused honey, fresh rock melon, fresh watermelon, and a scoop of homemade ice-cream made from Japanese rock melon puree.
I’m usually not a fan of melon desserts but Merry Melon got my tastebuds tingling. I had to ask Hazel and Emily to move Merry Melon to the centre of the table so that I could reach it easily. Hahaha.
Happy Emily and me with all the good food. Aiyo I love her megawatt smile!
Great food and awesome company made Friday night totally fantastic!
