Basic Set

$7.80 · 2 Reviews

New additions to the City Hall area are not to be taken for granted, at least not for those working nearby. Located on the second floor of Raffles City Shopping Centre, the newly opened Muji also houses their second Muji Cafe, making it a one-stop shop for Japanophiles. While we wouldn't necessarily go out of our way to splurge $16.90 on any casual lunch, this healthy yet tasty Basic Set ($7.80) is right up our alley. Choose from two styles, Japanese or Western, and select one cold deli of your choice, one side (hijiki salad or onsen egg), one soup (miso or cream of pumpkin and carrot) and one base (white rice or bread). There's also the Chicken Nanban Donburi ($14.90) that comes with fried chicken, avocado, mesclun salad, cherry tomatoes and daikon sprouts set on a bed of their yummy ten grain rice.
Avg price: $15 per person

Yay Muji Cafe's got a second outlet that's much closer to my workplace (I really hope they open one in the west!) and they have more offerings! The basic set (select Japanese or western style) comes with a carb (white rice or bread), soup (miso or cream of pumpkin and carrot), one side (hijiki salad or onsen egg) and a choice of one cold deli. The portion is just enough for lunch, but might be too little to pass as least for me >.
