Nature’s Nutrition @ Far East Square - Specialty Quinoa Bowls And Housemade Kombucha


Nature’s Nutrition has recently opened their second food service outlet at Far East Square serving quinoa bowls and housemade kombucha. If you are into superfood, Nature's Nutrition may be a brand that you are familiar with - A flagship brand by Nature 2000 Pte Ltd, a Singapore grown food distribution business specialising in organic superfoods and healthy packaged food, you will find their presence in major supermarkets, department stores, online platforms and organic shops. Instead of letting the packaged food stay cold on the shelf, they hope to connect with you by allowing you to experience the packaged food the company distributes.


Focusing on organic quinoa which they distribute, there are 4 types of Quinoa Bowls to choose from - Cajun Chicken ($8.90), Spicy Roasted Chicken Tikka ($9.40), Portobello Mushroom with Cheese ($9.40 ) and Baked Salmon Quinoa Bowl ($10.90), along with one base, 2 fixed toppings and 2 variable toppings. Add-ons options are available as well.


Instead of having to add on dried fruits and nuts mixture, their specialty base is already wholesome with organic quinoa, dried fruits, chia seeds, brown rice and pumpkin seeds. The fixed toppings are roasted pumpkin, which are really yummy, and romaine lettuce.

Spicy Roasted Chicken Tikka 4/5, Portobello Mushroom with Cheese 3.8/5

Our Spicy Roasted Chicken Tikka Bowl came with add on Portobello Mushroom with Cheese (+$3.00). Together with 2 variable toppings - miso butter corn and spicy broccoli, it was one big hefty bowl! The Chicken Tikka is popular for a reason - tender, juicy and moist, it was kind of unexpected coming from such concept. I would recommend pairing it with the yogurt dressing. The portobello mushroom was grilled to the right doneness. Nothing really could fail with melty cheese I guess. I didn't like the spicy broccoli at all, which soaked my grains with chilli oil.

Baked Salmon 3.8/5

We had the Baked Salmon Quinoa Bowl as well, along with marinated cherry tomatoes and soft chunks of honey glazed carrots. The salmon was quite moist and tender too. But what I really appreciate is that all toppings have been treated one way or another and not served cold, which makes any bowl warm and hearty.


And with just $3 more, you can enjoy a bottle of their house-brewed Kombucha made from their own organic tea series - Original Kombucha ($4.90 ala carte/$3 with bowl), Hibiscus Cinnamon Kombucha and Lemongrass & Ginger Kombucha. This pricing is by far one of the more affordable ones around. While all are equally refreshing, my personal favourite is the Lemongrass and Ginger. Other than homemade, rarely I get to enjoy a lemongrass drink without the presence of sugar.


After experiencing their quinoa bowls and kombucha made from their own packaged organic quinoa and organic tea series, and you are intrigued by them, they are available right on the spot for purchase!

Table Manners @ Changi City Point


If you are looking for value for money set lunch in the East, I would recommend Table Manners at Changi City Point. Located at The Oasis which is the alfresco area of Changi City Point, it is a great place to grab a bite or over a cup of coffee. The concept at Table Manners is rather simple, you either choose a set menu from 4 of the waiter's choice or customise your own. One basically choose from a combination of fibers and proteins with add-on options.


To complete our meal, we went for the add on at $5.80 that came with a drink, dessert and soup of the day. The good bowl of tomato soup was tangy and comforting. On the other hand, the dessert and ice lemon tea were average.

Cajun Chicken with Mashed Potato and Mushrooms 3.5/5

The customize Set B Lunch Set ($13.50) allows one to pick 2 fibers and 1 protein. For the fibers, I picked Mashed Potato and Mushrooms while the protein was Cajun Chicken. The mashed potato was smooth and creamy. The Cajun Chicken was also beautifully grilled, tender and moist.

Meat Lover 3/5

The Meat Lover ($17.00) is one of the 4 waiter's choice. It comes with NZ Angus Sirloin Steak, Pork Sausage and Buttered Mashed Potato. While I enjoyed the pork sausage, I thought the portion of the steak can be a bit bigger. I even heard the next table commenting about the size of the steak.

Overall one will get a decent meal at Table Manner with the value for money lunch set. Although the food was rather average and nothing really to shout about, patron at least has a choice of customising their own set menu with the ingredients they like.

New York Dessert Cafe (NYDC) @ Holland Village


(Photo taken with Canon IXUS 120IS )

It has been year since I last stepped into New York Dessert Cafe (NYDC). Since I have a NYDC voucher, I decided to go there for dinner before the voucher expired.

The Meatball that ate Manhattan 4/5

The Meatball Spaghetti that comes with a tennis ball sized meatball. I have never seen such a huge meatball before. For the size, I was worried that the meatball may not be cooked probably. To my relief it tasted pretty good and the tangy tomato sauce brings the whole dish together.

Southwestern Cajun Chicken 4/5

The Cajun Chicken was crisp on the outside and juicy in the inside. It is served with boiled broccoli and herb butter rice. Nothing special. Just a nice simple hearty dish.

Elmer Fudge (aka Ugly Cake) 4.5/5

The meal ended in a high note with the Elmer Fudge dessert. The slice of dense mocha cake with chocolate frosting was served warm. Ugly but moist and full of flavours.
