Ninja Bowl

Sister restaurant to Babette, this casual eatery is located in a cozy Duxton shophouse fitted out with minimalist black finishings. They put out East-meets-West meals like the Buta ($14)—cured pork belly, ume-pickled apples and onsen egg—and the Kaisen ($16), scallops and mussels in lemon butter sauce. For an extra $2-3, you can have each dish on a base of quinoa, greens, orzo pasta or rice. There are plenty of brunch options too. Items like Fancy French ($16), homemade broiche stuffed with fig jam and drizzled with honey umeboshi and hazelnut butter, plus una tama ($19), unagi and eggs are available all-day.
