The spread of freshly baked goods on display at Tiong Bahru Bakery's Raffles City outlet clearly indicates where their strengths lie, but their recently launched hot foods menu is just as formidable. There's only one grain bowl on the menu, the Rainbow Rice Bowl ($16), and it is as good as it looks. The brown and wild rice base is topped with tiny cubes of spicy pineapple kimchi, mixed sprouts, salsa verde, a wobbly organic egg and purple potato crisps. You can stop there and keep it as a vegetarian option, or follow the staff's recommendation and add on the extra portion of cured Salmon ($4) which goes well with every ingredient in the bowl. The space itself is great for brunch with the girlfriends, or simply to have a treat-yourself-lunch with good vibes as you bask under the natural sunlight pouring in!
Avg Price: $20 per person
