Say hello to my recent food obsession: donburi bowls from Kilo at Pact.

More specifically, I’m heads over heels with the salmon quinoa bowl! The ingredients are simple but outstanding on its own – sweet fresh and crunchy corn kernels (nothing out of a can!), creamy and perfectly ripe avocado, well-marinated radishes and shimeji mushrooms, and incredibly flavourful quinoa. So delicious that I don’t even mind that the salmon tends to be overcooked (tried and tested thrice). I can’t make out what’s in the secret dressing though – shoyu? Mirin? Vinegar? WHAT?! Guess I’ll keep going back to figure it out haha.

K’s pork belly bowl is a near replica – just substitute salmon for pork belly, quinoa for sushi rice. He didn’t like this place on our first visit but has since changed his mind yay. The power of a pork belly bowl!

I don’t like sweet crepes made of plain flour but I do love the savoury buckwheat ones! Sadly, they are not easy to find in Singapore as creperies are so rare here. Enter Le Comptoir, my current favourite go-to place for buckwheat crepes (or galettes, their French name). The edges of their crepes were wonderfully crispy and delicate while the center remained soft but not soggy under the weight of the toppings. I chose Kao San Road – a Thai inspired crepe with prawns, egg, juicy mango and plenty of raw bean sprouts. It may sound funky but I thoroughly enjoyed the unique combination! Chase The Spices is Le Comptoir’s take on the Indian classic chicken tikka masala and oh boy, the accompanying small pot of harmless looking chilli sauce was so potent and spicy that it burnt my tongue and made my eyes tear immediately! Not joking and so thankful that this was all K’s. Alrighty, enough said, I can’t wait to go back for more!
