Poutine

$14.00 · 7 Reviews

NINJAAAA! This cafe was so small, and it was located at the corner of the building I almost missed it! Ordered the highly raved Genki ($16) + Ninja Rice ($2), which consisted of Yaki Unagi, Roasted Pumpkin, Beansprouts, Onsen Egg and Pickled Beets. Really liked how the Unagi was cooked, so soft and perfect! The combination of all ingredients made this rice bowl exceptionally tasty. Didn't know I had to add $2 for the rice though, it should just be included with everything else!

I also ordered the Poutine ($14), which was Shoestring Fries, Melted Cheese, and Beef Chunks. So unhealthy but ahh I couldn't resist! The melted cheese made the whole thing taste very much like a pizza, and the beef chunks were shredded decently. However, I didn't like how the plate was filled with oil and made some of the fries very soggy and oily. I hope this improves!

An adaptation of the glorious, gravy-laden dish where the light brown gravy takes centrestage, the Poutine ($14) at Ninja Bowl is taken up a notch with the addition of 24-hour braised beef chunks. Golden shoestring fries are layered with tender beef and drenched in a luscious sauce. While the melted cheese scattered amongst the fries does not scream "classic Poutine", it does the job. The portion is quite generous so share it as an appetiser among a few friends while you wait for your grain bowls — we like the Noka Ninja Bowl ($14), which comes with the same braised beef (the more the merrier!) and a wobbly onsen egg, best.

Wasn't overly impressed by the Unagi bowl but this was really tasty. I'd come back just for this.

Okay everything is fine separately, including lovely braised beef. But if the cheese is not springy and there's no gravy, it is NOT a poutine. Kindly take note.

While a typical poutine is served with cheese curds, this rendition came with globs of cheese melted in clumsy hunks. Yet, it really didn't matter much, this was still the bomb. Just simple, happy food! Fries were perfect, beef cheeks were melt-in-your-mouth gorgeous. And that zhup. Just make sure your friend helps you wrestle with the cheese!

This is pure happiness on a plate :) Perfectly crisp & fluffy shoestring fries, melted cheese & a huge slab of tender, succulent braised beef cheeks. (YASSSS 🐮) Great for sharing tho I wouldn't even mind having it as a main all to myself! If you happen to be feeling down, pop by & order this. It'll definitely flip your mood around 😊

Not a fan of this Canadian delicacy in the first place, BUT that beef was really melt-in-the-mouth tender, give-you-a-big-hug full of flavour. Order this if you must rebel against the clean eating majority here; or just go for the Noka Ninja Bowl (with the beef cheek as the main).
