Dine At Home During Phrase 2 Heighten Alert - Kibar Japanese Grill + Bistro


Singapore is having another semi lockdown known as Phrase 2 Heighten Alert. One of the measures is that we are not allowed to dine in at all food establishments. Hence we are back to takeaway and delivery again, just like the circuit breaker period last year. One of the restaurants which impressed me with the yummy food is Kibar Japanese Grill + Bistro, located at Changi Civil Service Club. It is a restaurant under the radar, and I am glad to discover this hidden gem.

Miso Yuzu Corn 4.8/5

Kibar is an all-day bistro serving modern French and Japanese fusion in the day. It transforms into a bar for modern Japanese tapas-style dining in the evenings. The first item I tried is the Miso Yuzu Corn. Discounting that the food needs time to travel from the far East to my home in the West still impressed me. The grilled corn coated with Japanese seasoning is so good and sweet. I thought Mexican seasoning is the best to complement the corn, but this has changed my mind.

Truffle Portobello Katsu 4.5/5

The other fantastic starter we had is the Truffle Portobello Katsu. I love how the kitchen team elevated the enjoyment of the earthy and juicy mushroom, giving it a crusty coat.

Roasted Chicken stuffed with Truffle & Wild Mushroom Rice 4.2/5

AAnother beautiful item on the menu is the Roasted Chicken stuffed with Truffle & Wild Mushroom Rice. The roasted chicken is tender and juicy with golden-brown skin. It is also stuffed with fragrant Japanese rice, truffle and mushrooms. It can be a meal on its own

Iberico BBQ Spare Ribs 4.2/5

I am not sure I can fault any dish from Kibar. Cooked to fork-tender is the Iberico BBQ Spare Ribs. The ribs are marinated in Suntory black ale, grilled over binchotan for a smokey and malty finishing.

Snow Crab Leg Seafood Pao Fan 4.5/5

Last but not least, a must-try is the Snow Crab Leg Seafood Pao Fan. The broth is packed with depth and crustaceans robustness. Besides the snow crab leg, there are clams, prawns, cabbage and rice.

Kibar Japanese Grill + Bistro is availabe for both self-collection and islandwide delivery. To order, you can visit

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!
