Rice Bowl – Indulge in Rice-based Asian Cuisines in this Intriguing Restaurant

December 22, 2017


Located at Angsana Lang Co, Rice Bowl is a restaurant which offers many appetizing local dishes along with other pan Asian rice-based dishes. As most of you might know, rice is a cornerstone food for most Asian cuisine, including Vietnam. Enjoy this globally celebrated cereal grain from a range of filling dishes and sushi bites.


We were amazed by the elegant oriental interior upon entering Rice Bowl. This dimly lit restaurant exudes an intimate, romantic vibe. On one side, you have the common dining area which is able to accommodate small and large groups. On the other side, which is our favourite, there are private dining spaces separated by delicately designed wooden cages. Whether you are dining with your loved one, friends, or family, you do not have to worry about others eavesdropping on your conversation.



Our dinner started with complimentary appetizers of wanton skin crackers, shrimp rice crackers with black sesame, and grilled pork with pickled vegetables. These appetizers are accompanied by two chilli sauces, of which the spicier one is from Hoi An. The Tuna Tataki (280,000 VND) and Chao Tom (280,000 VND) are great starters too!



Generous portions of fresh and fatty tuna sashimi are buried under a mountain of Vietnamese greens, avocado mousse, and rice crisps. The dish is drizzled with soya glaze. You have to eat each piece of tuna with a little bit of each element, bringing all the layers of flavour together.

Chao Tom is a traditional Vietnamese dish which originated from the Hue region of Central Vietnam. Each garlic and shallot spiced prawn, grilled on a sugar cane stick, boasts rich and juicy flavours. Every bite contained mouthfuls of delicious, well-seasoned prawns.


Despite travelling in Vietnam, we had to satisfy our cravings for Singaporean Chilli Crab (800,000 VND), and were surprised to find out that this item is one of the restaurant’s signature dishes. Vietnamese crabs are smaller in size, but still meaty. The sauce was done just right such that it doesn’t cover up the natural sweetness of the crustacean.


The other main which we shared was the Steamed Seabass Fillet (460,000 VND), another signature item of the restaurant. A huge portion of fresh local seabass fish is steamed with Vietnamese herbs, and accompanied by bok choy and sweet and sour sauce. This was the highlight of our night!



Desserts came in the form of Khao Niaow Ma Muang (160,000 VND) and Pandan Coconut Rice Pudding with fresh fruits (160,000 VND). The former is actually Thailand’s popular sweet dessert which consists sticky rice with coconut milk and fresh mangoes. We were very satisfied with both of the tropical desserts.

Featuring a wonderful ambience and mouthwatering dishes, the Rice Bowl restaurant will please even the fussiest palates.
