We sampled a couple of Meraki’s recipes from earlier this month: The Italian Herb Bruschetta Bowl is packed with spicy lime rice, juicy herb-crusted roast chicken, roasted sweet potatoes and carrots, corn with chillies, garlic, tomatoes and basil – in other words, plenty of nourishing goodies in a single serving. The individual flavours are subtle and nuanced, teasing the palate lightly, punctuated by an aromatic, garlicky finish at the end of each mouthful.

The Korean Chicken Bulgogi Pasta Bowl is a mix of bulgogi-style chicken, chopped cabbage, shredded carrots, sesame seeds, fresh pear, and pasta coated in Korean spicy peanut sauce. Again, the chicken performs well – tender and meaty, filleted into substantial, satisfying strips. The pasta is firm and smooth, with the vegetables adding much-appreciated, slightly crunchy textures. The sauce is markedly rich and sticky, conveying a pleasant nuttiness.

In both ‘bowls,’ the ingredients are fresh, filled to the top, and arranged neatly, appetisingly bright and vibrant in their own way.

6. Meraki Kitchen-minAccording to Meraki Kitchen (Meraki is Greek for doing something with heart and soul), their initiative had its roots when co-founder Colin Lim began delivering food to his girlfriend for her workday lunches. Her colleagues became interested in her lunches, and soon, he was delivering meals to them too.

He then partnered up with Ronald Tee, testing their concept for three or four months before launching Meraki Kitchen. Colin and Ronald jointly come up with their weekly menus, though Colin is responsible for the actual food preparation. They believe that what we consume daily has a crucial impact on our well-being; therefore, Meraki Kitchen creates meals with health and nutrition in mind.
