Lean Bento @ Arcade

It is one thing to see your friend lose 20 kg, and it is yet another to see her open a new Bento Bar – Lean Bento – concept to help others achieve what she has ūüôā First off, I love Lean Bento’s clean and simple Japanese-inspired design which stands out among the shops in the arcade. It is a great use of space to be able to accommodate the CBD lunch crowd! While still¬†maintaining the 500 calories per meal philosophy, using responsibly sourced, pesticide-free and clean¬†ingredients, owners Charles Ng and Dionis Chiua have, after many months of research and¬†experimentation, developed a variety of new tastes, textures and flavors. Being a vegan, I was so glad to hear that Lean Bento serves the Protein¬†Garden ($12.90)¬†–¬†an ultra-low-calorie bento¬†featuring shitake and shimeji mushrooms, sweet¬†baby corn, edamame and chickpea salad,¬†capsicum, wakame salad, cherry tomatoes, multigrain¬†nigiri and home-made shoyu zero-carb¬†shirataki noodles.

P Bistro @ Owen Road

P Bistro is a cosy hidden gem near Little India! Simple menu in a cosy space, and I’m really glad for this flexitarian cafe with vegetarian options. We shared the Pomelo Salad for starters and I love this dish! This dish had a generous serving of pomelo, with fresh tomatoes, onions and fried shallots with a refreshing zingy sauce!¬†I would go back to eat this salad as a main. For mains, N had the¬†Beef Bolognise Spaghetti¬†($18) while I tried the¬†Vegetarian Pasta Fresca¬†($14). Both were splendidly prepared. The vegetarian pasta¬†with a clear soupy base¬†is one of my favourites in Singapore, rivaled probably only by Original Sin. With the fine quality of food at relatively affordable prices, I am not surprised they already have a second branch at Palais Renaissance! Will be back!
