Healthy meals get boring when they're simply filled with romaine lettuce, so I'm glad that Lean Bento does their bentos slightly differently (and deliciously too!).

Select a protein (salmon at an additional $2), a staple, a premium topping and two regular toppings to form your satiating bento. The honey miso salmon and truffle edamame were slightly disappointing, with the former being mushy and the latter lacking a truffle taste. My favourite component has to be the air-fried sweet potato balls - absolutely crunchy on the outside and sweet on the inside.

Wash it down with a refreshing Iced Black Coffee ($3.55), or end off on a sweet note with the Protein Gelato ($3.50), available in honeycomb and matcha flavours.


Just a 5 mins walk away from Buona Vista MRT lies Lean Bento, a halal-certified cafe dishing out healthy bentos, protein-packed desserts and a decent selection of coffee.

The combination of roasted chicken with scrambled eggs and waffles (as pictured) may be new, but don't be put off by this novelty. The herb-rubbed chicken was incredibly flavourful and succulent, but the seasoning may be too overwhelming for some as the taste of herbs and spices lingered on my tongue for too long. I'm also confused as to why they chose chicken thighs over the leaner breast meat (well they're called LEAN Bento right).

But I was more pleasantly surprised at the protein waffle. Initially disappointed with the soggy exterior, I found myself enjoying the cakey, slightly dense interior that exudes a strong buttermilk aroma. Yes, literally like a buttermilk pancake with abs that gives you abs 💪


Spamming protein, and ordered a miso honey salmon (told them not to torch it & it actually tastes better), chilli chicken (chicken thigh marinated in cajun spices and topped with a non spicy chilli sauce), air fried sweet potato tots (was previously potato last time I ate there, but definitely preferring the sweet potato ones), truffle edamame, roasted hummus, cherry tomatoes and mesclun salad ($19.20)
