New in town: Beng Who Cooks, Neil Road — Hawker stall-turned-restaurant serves rice bowls from S$12

Birthed in a small Hong Lim Complex hawker stall in 2018, Beng Who Cooks has today reached new heights by taking their operations to a brand-new brick-and-mortar location—at 39 Neil Road. In the spirit of new beginnings, head chef Jason Lim is also flanked with a new, expanded team, as well as a refreshed menu.

Many would know the restaurant for their unique Singapore-style poke bowls, and their new lunch menu boasts a revived selection. Indulge in fresh aburi salmon drizzled with ikura soy sauce topped with a traditional onsen egg with their Aburi Salmon Bowl (S$12), or if you’re feeling a bit more atas, try their Feeling Rich Bowl (S$15)—foie gras, mustard grain, onsen egg, and zai er laid atop a bed of flavoured rice.

Lunch Menu (1130-1500) & Dinner Menu (1900-2200) at the new Beng Who Cooks 39.

Like old times, things will change because I get bored often.

The new-and-improved Beng Who Cooks are also serving a dinner menu (S$60), which includes interesting dishes like Wanton with Caviar and Underlying Balls—the former being pork wanton served with special black vignette sauce and caviar whereas the latter: a fusion of marinated mozzarella pearls, serrano ham, concasse cherry tomatoes and pesto sauce.

Salad options are plenty, like the Basic Meatless (S$7.50) which is a mesclun salad mix peppered with roasted cherry tomatoes, mozzarella balls, shaved parmesan and candied almond. Side dishes come in the form of Chunky Mashed Potato (S$3), Sea-Salt Broccoli (S$5) and Beng’s Style Prawn Paste Chicken (S$5.50), and boy oh boy do they sound tasty.

No rules // no restrictions.

When you are in a hawker, you’re restricted by many rules and regulations. I’m not…
