It was time for catching up lunch with *April again, and we decided on Healthy Soba IKI - partially because there was no queue during lunch hour at Raffles Place! It is a casual dining concept, and specialises in healthy soba noodles made from buckwheat - a very nutritious and healthy grain. Every bowl is affordable, starting from SGD$9.00 to SGD$12.00.
Both of us started with a Salmon Salad (SGD$3.50) each, a rather tasty and simple salad tossed with some lettuce, tomatoes and salmon sashimi slices, dressed with a refreshing lemony sauce that made this dish very appetising.
For mains, *April chose the Teriyaki Chicken Bowl (SGD$10.00) - pieces of succulent chicken sitting on Japanese rice. *April commented that it was quite tasty, and the portion was just nice.
I had the Avocado & Pepper Duck Bowl (SGD$10.00), which was packed strongly with flavours. The buttery avocado was paired beautifully with the piquantly-umami smoked (pepper) duck. I tasted no pepper in the cubes of pepper duck, and while the meat was not too tough, it tasted exactly like smoked duck. The overall toss of duck cubes, avocado and tomato made the rice bowl pleasantly flavourful.
