Along the busy street of Telok Ayer welcomes the new establishment – Grain Traders. Grain Traders has a pretty unique concept, salad bowl made with a local fusion twist to satisfy the ever hungry stomach of the working adults.

The furnishing style Grain Traders going for are that of simplistic and minimalist which pretty suits the fast pace walkers of the working adults who would just like to go for a fuss free nutritious bowl of food. Good food over fanciful decorations.

How Grain Traders work is pretty simple – you can either go for their Signature Bowls ($16 nett) or Build Your Own Bowl ($16 nett). Personally, for the same price i would go for their Build Your Own Bowl, at least i can choose what i like from the wide range of variety they are offering while for Signature Bowls, they are pretty much pre-designed bowls with limited choices.

The first step of Build Your Own Bowl is to of course to choose your GRAINS! Japanese Rice, Brown Rice, Quinoa, Bulgur Wheat, Soba Noodles and Super Green Bed. For a safer choice, i opted for the Japanese Rice. I wanted to go for their Soba Noodles, but some places always mix it with wasabi which puts me off.

Next you can choose 1 protein and i have gladly went for their Seared Marinated Tuna. Something different and refreshing. They were not stingy with their portion, and each individual cuts were rather thick too.

Next, you can choose 1 Hot Veggies and 2 Cold Veggies. The variety they have is rather fusion and international. For something different, i went for their Furikake Corn as the hot veggie, which was flavorful; then i went for healthy options ofย  Beansprouts salad and Apple Kimchi as the 2 cold veggies. Totally pleased with my bowl at this point, loving the marination of the beansprouts salad and apple kimchi not forgetting the juiciness and crunchiness that accompanied.

Last but not least, time to sealed your bowl with toppings and sauce of your choice. Decided to go for their Furikake flakes, a kind of dry japanese seasoning made up of dried and ground fish, sesame seeds, chopped seaweed, sugar, salt, and monosodium glutamate. As unhealthy it may sounds, but it tasted heavenly delicious. The final sauce i chose was Salsa Verde, something herby on the palette.

Here’s the birth of my Build Your Own Bowl! Frankly speaking, it tasted good on its own even without the addition of the sauce as most of their veggies are in fact well marinated, distinct with their own flavors and colors! Although the price may seems to be a little high on the end, but i must admit, the bowl really tasted wholesome and awesome! A good recharge alternative to perk you up in the midst of the working week! You can opt for the Square Meal at a top-up of $2 which gives you an additional slice of banana cake and a bottled mineral water too.
