Neon Pigeon 2.0 returns with Daytime Bento Sets, Bao's & Ramen

Published - 16 January 2021, Saturday

After its stellar relaunch in 2020, Neon Pigeon is set to once again draw your attention with a brand new thoughtfully curated lunch menu offering, ushering in the new year.

A “bento” is originally known as a single portion takeout. At Neon Pigeon, where community is key, the idea behind the “The Bento Set” is to offer corporate executives and lunch aficionados a quick but tastefully put together set lunch presented “bento” style. It includes a four-course offering of a “snack”, a “birdfeed” and a “bao” or a main. All bentos come complete with miso soup and daily omakase dessert.

This well thought out offering will not burn a hole in your pocket; instead it will send you into “food-coma” bliss tempting you to call it a day at the office – there are also cocktails and sake on offer during the day.  At just S$29++, this is a set lunch that will leave you satisfied on all fronts

This menu is by no means “simple”. The “Duck Confit Ramen”, available only during the day, at S$20, is not to be missed. Be warned, portions are limited and the consensus is that this is worthy of an addition to your bucket list.

Should ramen not be your thing, the ever popular “Baos” or buns filled with the likes of “Soft Shell Crab” at S$15 and new additions “Sake Smoked Pork” at S$16 and “Grilled Mushrooms” with black pepper teriyaki at S$14 are available along with a selection of a la carte dishes. Told you it was a thoughtful menu, which is something Neon Pigeon prides itself in – to treat all guests coming into the coup like family..

Neon Pigeon has been one of Singapore’s coolest spots and Neon Pigeon 2.0 doesn’t disappoint. With the recent move, the vibe is just as cool with the added bonus of the lunch offering.  

This Expat Choice reporter arrived at the new location at 36 Carpenter Street and the first thing I saw were the five black glass panels with the chic, fuchsia pigeon - the only signage needed.  Once inside, I was transported into the hip space with huge wall murals painted on site. They are a riot of color and energy and create a sense of excitement before you even make it to your table. 

The lunch menu has been carefully crafted by Chef Paul Lim with the intent to bring beautiful food at affordable prices. There are several options with the four-course Bento Set at the forefront for only $29++. My choices were the Japanese cucumbers, Tokyo hummus, free range chicken katsu style which comes with miso soup and rice and finished with the daily omakase dessert. As a special treat, my lunch companions and I ordered the duck confit ramen to share.

The food is absolutely delicious. The cucumbers are cold and crisp with the perfect hint of garlic, sesame and yuzu vinegar. My second course was Neon Pigeon’s signature edamame hummus. It’s so creamy and light served with curry chips and it makes your tastebuds sing. This was my favorite course. Next was the duck confit ramen. This is Chef Lim’s dream dish. It is served only at lunch and in limited quantity. The broth is rich, the duck is tender and flavorful and the ramen is perfect. I

t’s worth an early lunch seating to make sure you get to enjoy this culinary delight. It is a meal in and of itself, also perfect to share. The price of $20 is a steal. The main course is served with miso soup and rice. I enjoyed the katsu style chicken. My friends ordered the cod and the tofu. We were all thrilled with our selections and commented over and over again about the delicious food we had experienced. 

The meal ended when with a light and bright yuzu cake. Just two sweet bites which were a lovely way to end the meal. The dessert course will change daily. 

I look forward to a return visit very soon. There are several other choices on the lunch menu which looked fabulous. My next lunch order will be the sake smoked pork bao. 

This is a must-try lunch spot. Expat Choice is once again at the front of the line when it comes to hot spots, delicious food, good deals and cool experiences. Neon Pigeon 2.0 ticks all the boxes.
