Pulled Pork Grain Bowl

$18.00 · 29 Reviews

This had quite a generous amount of pulled pork, but for $18++, well, it better! Nothing really unique, but a convenient location and cozy interior makes this cafe super.... popular.

The barley grains were also Q and added that textural element to this dish. Next time, we will definitely return to try their pulled pork grain bowl version. Nice atmosphere to chill out too.👍🏼 I wonder why we have missed this place out when it is just a few steps away from The Lokal. But good choice to try it out today!

Pulled Pork Grain Bowl ($19.50+)
You might think grain bowls don't fill you up but this was SOLID! The pulled pork was on the dry side, but everything else was delicious & roasted to good texture & flavour.

For those who want to eat healthy yet don't want to sacrifice flavour, these grain bowls are for you. Set on a bed of quinoa, bulgar wheat and pearl barley mix, the well-seasoned and extremely flavourful proteins (i love the pulled pork the best) are served alongside yummy side ingredients like furikake baby corn (LOVE!), red cabbage and apple slaw, roasted zucchini, roasted butternut squash, sauteed cherry tomatoes and mixed mushrooms. Yummo.

The flavours all go really well and together, they make a really hearty meal. Just enough to satisfy my tummy without giving me a food coma in office afterwards. #Burpproved

Despite new competition sprouting along Neil Road and Everton Park, this cafe decked out in beautiful tiles and classy rose gold furnishings is holding its ground with satisfying mains and good coffee. While the menu at Populus Coffee and Food Co. features a good list of delicious mains like the Rendang Donburi ($20), it also has a small section dedicated to healthier grain bowls that is easy to miss. Of the three bowls available (all have the same vegetable toppings but different proteins and bases), we enjoyed the Pulled Pork Grain Bowl ($18) the most. The meat is tender and well-seasoned, sitting on a bed of quinoa, bulgur wheat and pearl barley, and lots of vegetables like mushrooms, tomatoes and pumpkin. It is a well-balanced, nutritious bowl that will fill you, and is available throughout the week for both lunch and dinner. Swing by for a quick lunch with colleagues, or come in the night with your friends and catch up in this cosy space.

Roast chicken grain bowl with lots of veggies. The plate was surprisingly good.

Utterly delightful and vibrant meal.

Base of quinoa, bulgar wheat, and pearl barley, topped with a vibrant medley of furikake baby corn, red cabbage & apple slaw, roasted zucchini, sauteed cherry tomatoes, mixed mushrooms, and roasted butternut squash.

Finished with slow cooked pulled pork that is moist and savoury. Happiness in a bowl.

Cod was lightly seasoned and blended well with overall dish though it did taste a tad overdone.
With one interesting Gibraltar coffee drink which really is a flat white with less milk. #weekendtreats #burpple #cafehunting
