Previously called โ€œHainanese Donburiโ€, this lil pop-up sells Chinese-style dons (I.e.: Japanese rice bowls)! The sauce just tasted mildly of salted egg, going well with the chicken cutlet. Sous vide egg was truly well done - it had an oozy molten yolk which spread slowly over the bed of rice ๐Ÿ˜‹ Cereal bits were a nice touch, adding some sweetness to the overall taste!
My only complaint would be the rice: overly moist and densely packed, like some angry chef packed the rice with all his might. Also, itโ€™s a pity this comes in a takeout box though, Iโ€™m sure this dish (especially the katsu and egg) would taste much better when served hot!

I assumed this gimmicky 80g pokebowl would be a tiny appetizer, a sneak peek of sorts into their REAL menu. So I was pleasantly surprised to receive this large bowl filled to the brim with a colorful assortment of healthy bits and bobs!

Except for the salad base (actually was the salad base cold too?? I canโ€™t remember oops), everything came chilled and fresh; veggies were crunchy and well-seasoned tuna cubes were springy to the touch! Upon mixing it all together, I can honestly say this delightful bowl isnโ€™t simply a sum of its parts. All these healthfoods mesh well together, creating an incredibly savoury flavor burst that still manages to refresh oneโ€™s palate ๐Ÿ˜

Their wide array of condiments is also rather impressive - I went wild on the avocado miso, dripping this thick condiment all over!! Next time, itโ€™ll be the garlic sesame mayo...๐Ÿ˜‹

An interesting mod-sin concept, with kong ba pao filled with different types of non-traditional meat that still manages to pay homage to traditional Asian cuisine. Our favourite was the signature pulled pork bao: the tender strips of meat coated in thick dressing was bursting with the flavour of stewed pork! The accompanying achar salad was a nice touch, providing a tangy refreshing feeling which cut through the thickness of the meat. I personally enjoyed the spicy beef as well as its tenderness was comparable to the pork...though the accompanying greens were less flavorful.

Sadly, the tempura fish bao was a miss...it came in one sad small piece, hidden betwixt the folds of the fluffy bao. Sauce was pretty bland, overwhelmed by the fried tempura. Itโ€™s neither avocado nor wasabi...so what is this green sauce?!? Iโ€™m still trying to figure it out. ๐Ÿ˜…
