Thrive Kitchen is a new bistro that has recently opened at NeWest Condominium, a new property in West Coast. The place is still rather deserted with almost ninety percent of the shops still vacant. Nevertheless, it is a worthy place to check if you are looking for healthy and wholesome food
Nonya-Inspired Assam Fish Brown Rice Bowl 4.2/5
Thrive Kitchen has a big menu ranging from soup, salad, mains and your usual brunch items. What interests me is their Asian inspired rice bowls. We tried the Nonya-Inspired Assam Fish Brown Rice Bowl ($17.90). Diners have a choice of either brown rice or quinoa (extra $1.50). The plate comes with a poached egg, kale and haddock in a housemade assam broth. I am actually quite impressed with the tangy and spicy assam which complements the fish excellent.
Curry Whole Leg Brown Rice Bowl 4.2/5
The other rice bowl we tried is the Curry Whole Leg Brown Rice Bowl ($18.90). It comes with a huge chicken leg and potatoes in housemade curry sauce. The chicken leg was tender and the curry sauce tasted very comforting and homely. I not a big fan of brown rice because it quite tough and its tiring to chew on. However the brown rice here is pretty moist. Even your grandparents will not have problem eating it.
Initial when we look at the pricing, we felt that it was rather expensive for a rice bowl. However the portion is actually quite big, as you can see in the pictures. I am actually surprised that the western designed or looking bistro, actually served some pretty good Asian fares.
