Grain Traders – Delicious Salad Bowls At A Price

Honestly, salad shops can really survive in CBD. And here’s one at the newly opened CapitaGreen. This place is a little different from your usual salad place cos you get to choose your favourite kind of grain and the various toppings to go along at a standard price of $16 a bowl. Yups, you heard that right. Even though the place is fairly new, they have a steady stream of customers everyday.

The most important board – The Menu

Order it like this: 1 grain, 1 protein, 1 hot veg, 2 cold veg, 1 sauce and 1 topping

Seared Marinated Tuna

Steak and Salmon

Green Bed, Tuna, Wild Mushrooms, Wafu Tomatoes, Cucumber Pickles & Crushed Peanuts w Basil Vinaigrette

Soba Noodles, Salmon, Wild Mushrooms, Wafu Tomatoes, Apple Kimchi & Garlic & Shallots with Miso Caramel Sauce

Please be gentle with the miso caramel – it gets really salty

I really like their soba noodles, especially with the addition of garlic and shallots that makes it really appetising. Their proteins are decent though some might find the portion a little small. I enjoyed their cold veggies with a little twist and their hot veggie that gave some comfort. Add in $2 more and you get a meal, though the drink doesn’t include coffee

Flat White $5.50

The friend got me a takeaway cos we get 2 espresso shots in a takeaway cup but 1 espresso shot if we are dining in, for the same price. o.O

Coffee beans are from Sarnies which have a smooth finishing and well bodied with a bitter aftertaste

Just when you thought a salad meal (including drinks) cannot get any more expensive. Conversation overheard when someone came over to say hello to my friend;

“oh you had this too? yeah i’m having it but I feel it’s a little pricey” but she went on to join the queue

Expectations vs reality =/
