Ninja Bowl @ Duxton Road - A Refreshed Brunch Menu With Japanese Flair


With the successful launch of its sister restaurant, Ninja Cut at Seah Street, Ninja Bowl has also refreshed its brunch menu to give diners a whole new offerings with Japanese flair to indulge in their next visit.

Aligot-O Gozaimasu 3.5/5

Giving the classic French Pommes Aligot to a new twist is the Aligot-O Gozaimasu ($18). It comes with a generous slab of deep fried pork katsu, poached eggs, ume apple slaw and trufle cheese mashed potatoes. I like the idea of the apple slaw which gives the dish a nice crunchy and tangy contrast. However I felt that the pork needed a bit more marination or seasoning for a lift in flavour.

Mentaiko Scrambled 3.8/5

The Mentaiko Scrambled ($18) will definitely win the heart and tummy of many if the execution is spot on. It comes with pan seared Hokkaido scallops on top a bed of creamy mentaiko scrambled eggs, and topped with edamame and furikake. I could not really tasted the bold mentaiko flavour, I guess it needs to be bolder.

Ninja Okonomiyaki 4/5

Out of the four new brunch items I tried, the Ninja Okonomiyaki ($18) is my favourite. The highlight for me is the mini savoury pancakes which were crispy and packed with flavours. It is paired with the braised beef check, poached eggs, sliced red ginger and garden greens. I was hoping that I can change the poached eggs to fried eggs, which I felt will complement the okonomiyaki better.

Shinjuku Comfort 4/5

Perfect for the rainy day is comforting bowl of Shinjuku Comfort ($18) that comes with orzo pasta simmered in a rich miso broth topped with salmon confit, carrots, corn and onsen egg. It even comes with a piece of butter to be mixed into the broth ofr a velvety finish.

Fancy French 4.2/5

An all time favourite at Ninja Bowl is the Fancy French ($16). Stuffed with fig jam, the french toast is drizzled in a ume-bashi infused honey sauce. Fluffy and sweet, this is best paired with the fresh grapes, plums and homemade hazelnut butter for a balanced finished. I would recommend this at the start of your meal or you have to wait for about 20 minutes for this.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
