Let’s Get A Hokey Bowl @ Hokey Poki, The New Joint At FOMO Singapore

James Chan

Hokey Poki

What’s in a Hokey bowl? Let’s just say it’s totally up to you because you get to pick and choose. While the concept might sound familiar to some Japanese/Hawaiian fusion f&b outlets (that have huge spiders found in their bowls). Hokey Poki is totally different with their product offerings catered to the local Singaporean palate (and definitely no spiders).

Hokey Poki Signboard

The Food

There are 11 different mains to select. Of course you have your standard Salmon Poke Bowl BUT be spoiled for choice with selections like Laksa Mentai Soft Shell Crab, Sambal Shishamo and Wasabi Mayo Chicken!

If you thought that was all, you can even choose your own base (Salad, Purple Rice (Hot/Cold), Quinoa and Cold Cha Soba) !

Hokey Poki Salmon Poke

Salmon Poke with Cold Cha Soba, $10.90

Seasoned Salmon Cubes with Mango, Jellyfish and Onsen Egg

There’s a lot of different flavour profiles in this dish but somehow everything blends together perfectly. The soba was nice and firm (not to mention tasty), the salmon was fresh, the onsen egg accentuated the nice creamy texture of the salmon and for $10.90 you get a really generous amount of salmon and jellyfish!

 Hokey Poki Sambal Shishamo

Sambal Shishamo with Hot Purple Rice, $11.90

Grilled Shishamo with Asian Spicy Sauce and Seasoned Seaweed

Purple rice is something new to me. Apparently, it possesses antioxidants (a trait that brown rice does not have) and I honestly think it tastes way better than brown rice. Moving on to the Shishamo, 2 words – SUPER TASTY. But then again, Shishamo isn’t for everyone. If you like Shishamo, the Shishamo here is really good! This dish is slightly spicy so just a quick heads up.

Hokey Poki Sushi Taco

Sushi Taco, $5.90 For 1 / $7.90 For 2

The Sushi Taco has been gaining popularity this year. Choose from a selection of 10 savoury Sushi Tacos at Hokey Poki! We tried the Cheesy Prawn, Otah, Sambal Soft Shell Crab and Shishamo Sushi Tacos.

The amazing thing about the Sushi Taco at Hokey Poki is that the tasty Seaweed Taco Shell doesn’t break when you bite into it because it’s being held together by a light tempura batter!

Hokey Poki Smores Taco

But wait, there’s more! Hokey Poki has AN AMAZING CREATION for all dessert lovers! The S’mores Taco! Nothing can go wrong with marshmallows and chocolate yeah? But to up their game, they make their marshmallows in house! This is a definite MUST TRY!

Hokey Poki Soft Shell Crab Taco

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

Tasty rice bowls at affordable prices, serves taco sushis and that DELECTABLE S’MORES TACO? Hokey Poki gets a HELL YEAH from me.

BPC Cafe – Home Cooked Meals Passed Down From Generation to Generation

James Chan

BPC Cafe

Run by two brothers with a strong passion for cooking, BPC Cafe recently opened for business earlier in 2018. They’re located at Burlington Square, where the competition for the office crowd and students from Laselle and SOTA is extremely strong.

BPC Cafe Storefront

So how have they survived thus far? The answer lies in their competitive pricing and of course their delicious rice bowls.

The Food

In a short interview with one of the brothers, Mr Vincent, I found out that BPC stands for Beef, Pork and Chicken. Which are the ingredients you’ll find in any of their dishes.

Similar to a Japanese fast food brand that specializes in rice bowls (not mentioning names here) BUT the difference here is, BPC Cafe’s bowls actually taste good! BPC’s rice bows allow one to reminisce about the joys of good old home cooking. Also, the recipes for these bowls are interestingly passed down from their mother and from watching her cook when they were younger. Trust me, when someone says that, expectations will be raised (like mine were).

BPC Cafe Black Pepper Beef Bowl

Black Pepper Beef Rice Bowl, $8.90

The beef was extremely tender and well marinated with slight sweet and spicy notes pleasantly enveloping your palate. Everything in the bowl has been well thought of. Personally, for me, I felt the portion was a little small though. But I’m a savage. This was definitely my personal favorite!

BPC Cafe Bulgogi Spicy Chicken

Bulgogi Spicy Chicken Rice Bowl, $7.90

The chicken wasn’t spicy! But they gave a generous amount of chicken though! It was tender, flavorful and I love how each individual ingredient works well together to create a wholesome and appealing dish. Oh and did you know that they make the kimchi in house?

BPC Cafe Crispy Pork Chop Nppdle

Crispy Pork Chop Noodle, $6.50

One of their new introductions to their existing menu. Looked a little plain to be honest but that pork chop, my goodness. For that price, it’s so much value! You get a crispy crust with tender meat and you’ll definitely feel full for sure. Even if you don’t, just order another one lah!

 

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

For the price and the quality of food you get, I would give it a solid YES from me. Everything I ordered was delicious! Remember how at the start of this article I said my expectations were raised because Mr Vincent told me all his dishes were from recipes passed on to him from his mother? Let’s just say my expectations were well met.
