Had a beef shabu shabu curry don which comes with a drink and a soup. A little watery to my liking. A good light meal for those in the CBD area. Maybe I will prefer to bring my own curry bento to work next time.

First encounter with this was the night I lost my wallet (IC, CC, everything!) And this bento proved to be my source of comfort for that horrible night.
Stamina Pork Garlic Bento - $9.90 and comes with a small bowl of clear soup and complimentary green tea (not in pict) for now. Even the sliced cucumbers and edamame (hidden in the back) are well seasoned :)

Still fretting over what to have for lunch? Lunching at Raffles is no easy feat but I believe Kintaro Bento is somewhat a known secret in the CBD area. With fast, efficient and friendly service, Kintaro Bento offers a variety of affordable healthy bentos. The Chicken Soboro Bento, being one of their star dishes is simple and tasty. The combination of the well-marinated miso chicken, scrambled eggs and soy mushrooms is very homemade (for a lack of better word), I can just imagine my Japanese host mother preparing this. The pan fried pork shabu-shabu was also pretty good, making it an ideal fuss-free lunch spot for me.

And if you don't feel like leaving your office, they provide delivery service, free for those within the Raffles Place area!

Today's takeout packed in true Japanese compact style: sesame seed-littered rice nearly completely hidden by generous ribbons of shabu shabu beef, with pickled cucumber, edamame and half a soft-centred egg on the side – and don't forget that bowl of warm stew teeming with slices of carrot and radish.

The beef, simmered in a leek and onion broth, was simple but tasty, its gravy seeping into the bed of rice beneath. Overall a wholesome, satisfying lunch that was just what I was looking for this rainy afternoon. And just check out that adorable wooden spoon...I couldn't bear to use it!
