Great for a quick, healthy lunch option in the CBD with delicious smoothies and yes, healthy bowls, Try their popular Green Goodness Salad with things like homemade hummus, feta, and smashed avocado, and a sprinkling of cashew and mixed nuts. The Keto Moto ($15) is "Very filling and large bowl of salad. There were tons of spinach in it. And lots of different ingredients to go with it. The pesto was good especially with the little bits of sundried tomatoes."

The generous bowls at The Daily Cut start from an affordable $9. Burppler Kar Yan Yeong really liked the curried cauliflower, charred cabbage with chilli oil and the salmon fillets, while Burppler Chew Sher Mein says the tempeh is a good option for vegans and vegetarians looking for their protein fix.

While the proteins at Paddyfolks are mostly chicken, they make up for it with their aromatic range of base carbs, including the garlic butter and tomato rice, and generous portions. Burppler Melissa Archuleta says "The chicken here is really damn tender, which took me quite by surprise because I expected it to be on the tougher side. They also have quite an extensive array of sauces to drizzle all over your DIY bowls. Big yes from me."

Get your healthy bowl fix at Kipos with incredibly fresh vegetables and meat-free options like tempeh, tofu, and Quorn. Burppler Elizabeth Lim says what's good about Kipos is that "I could get more “premium” veggies without any additional cost, like spinach, and rocket (which I really love). There’s also tamagoyaki instead of the typical onsen egg."

Burppler Jasmine L. likes combining spicy charred chicken, beetroot hummus, and egg white spinach.

Build your own bowls at YoBo (from $8.90), a fancy little joint with a little garden right beside to soak in some Vitamin D. Their bowls are fully customisable, and you pay per portion for any combination of carbs, proteins, and sides, including baked dory, kale chips, and honey soy chicken. Burppler Zac Lee recommends adding on their creamy and smooth broccoli purée for an extra fifty cents.

You don't always need rice for a grain bowl. At Sideways, you'll find grilled ribeye steaks and other proteins mixed together with leafy greens, with pairings like avocado and poached eggs to add flavour. Burppler Amanda Liu loves the Halloumi Fever, with comes with roasted aubergine, padron peppers, artichokes, and more. "Each piece of item is grilled perfectly with a hint of char with every bite. Mix them together with the hummus to give you a nutty fix and a creamy finish with the burrata."

Haakon is best known for its fruity acai bowls, but it turns out that its grain bowls are also delicious with lots of DIY options to choose from - and extra healthy too. The shirataki noodles, scrambled eggs, and tomato salsa are highly raved about, but you can also go for their classic bowls. Burppler Dilys Lim says, "To shake things up, I tried their mentaiko fish ($14.90) and the omu beef rice ($12.90) for a change. Both dishes did not disappoint, the beef was tender while the fish was well seasoned. Do try it the next time you're craving for some healthy goodness!"

Think tasty grain bowls with ramen crisps for the carbs portion in case you're tired of rice. Try the Taco Mexx Chicken ($14) with salsa and cilatro cream, making the whole thing taste like a burrito. Burppler Shaun got the Pork Belly Miso Grain Bowl ($16) and "the braised pork belly was melt-in-your-mouth tender and super flavourful!". KARA is also a dessert bar, so don't forget some yoghurt ice cream.
