Decided to eat-clean today. Thus, headed over to HAAKON at 313@Somerset for lunch. HAAKON is a small cafe situated at Basement 2 of the shopping mall, opposite OWNDAYS. They have another branch at Holland Village!
HAAKON strives to serve healthy, nourishing food while not compromising the taste of their food. They serve All-Day Breakfast, Smoothies, Juices, Superfood Bowls, and Salads. The concept of this cafe is based on Scandinavian’s style of minimalist and healthy-eating.
Ordered 2 different DIY Salad Bowls (one Small, one Regular).
The small size DIY salad bowl cost S$11.90 without any extra add-ons, that comes with 1 Base, 1 Main, 1 Premium Side and 2 Toppings.
The regular size DIY salad bowl cost S$13.90 only, you get to choose 1 Base, 2 Mains, 2 Premium Sides and 2 Toppings.
They also sell large size DIY salad bowl for the big appetites, which cost S$16.90, that comes with 1 Base, 3 Mains, 2 Premium Sides and 2 Toppings.
In the menu, you get to choose from different selections of items like Grilled/Smoked Salmons, Sirloin Steaks, Zoodles, Brown Rice, Onsen Eggs, Beetroot Hummus, Avocados, Cherry Tomatoes, Chicken Breasts, Corns, Carrots, Edamame and many more.
The steak I had was tender and tasty, the grilled salmon was cooked just nice, with a little crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The greens are fresh and mixed well with the sauces. Somehow, I felt that no matter how you mix the different food items in the salad bowl, it turns out to be perfect and delicious. HAAKON simply nailed it!
Verdict Time! I find that HAAKON is an interesting concept, bringing a new choice of healthy food in town and also combining healthy greens with proteins, making it the perfect, healthy meal for everybody. The only downside I’ve found is that it took me awhile to locate the menu for their DIY salad bowl, which wasn’t prominent to see. The environment at 313@Somerset was great, you still able to enjoy your food in peace while looking at shoppers rushing about to get their shopping done.
I highly recommend HAAKON to everyone! Trying out healthy-eating? Definitely, make a visit to HAAKON!
