Dining at Ninja Cut, is like transporting one back to our childhood days where the new menu gives a modern spin to our childhood eats such as the chicken macaroni, steamed egg, rosti and kaya toast.
Starting with the Don't-Cha-Wan-Some-Mushi ($16) is a Japanese variation of the Chinese steamed egg dish. It comes with a luscious egg custard on top of a bed of cheese rice which is topped with onions, tobiko and spring onions. Diner has a choice of having it with shabu pork belly or Hokkaido scallop (additional $2). The experience felt like having a bowl of Japanese mui fan with steamed up held excellently together by the flavoursome broth. I am actually quite impressed with the dish. It is probably the first I have seen anywhere else served this creation.
Beefy Patty Macaroni 4/5
We probably grown up having chicken macaroni soup but the dish is given an even more hearty take with the Beefy Patty Macaroni ($16). A whole beef hamburg stuffed with cheese, sits in a bowl of macaroni and tangy homemade tomato broth. There is even a poached egg to give it a creamy finish.
Crab Rosti 4.2/5
The Crab Rosti ($18) is not the usual type that is made from potato. This is actually made with a mix of sweet potato, potato, cheese and onion, giving it more crunch and flavour. The rosti is further topped with poached egg, mesclun mix, crab pate and tobiko.
Kaya Toast 4.2/5
Lastly we had the Kaya Toast ($16) which comes with brioche French toast stuffed with mochi cheese and homemade kaya. This is served with gula melaka, crumble and sea salt mascarpone ice cream. The toast is already very good on its own but it even better when you have it together with the sea salt mascarpone ice cream.
Compared to Ninja Cut's previous menu. I actually like the new menu a lot. Instead of just putting carb and protein into a bowl, I can taste the creativity to up the ante giving the childhood food a modern interpretation that is both delicious and beautiful.
