DOCO at International Plaza, Singapore

Sh-nack Don

There are a bazillion rice bowl places in the city these days. And at a quick glance, it wasn't obvious how this place was going to be any different. But their name actually stands for donburi-coconut, meaning that they also have some kind of coconut shakes and ice cream to go along with their bowls. That made me curious enough to try it out (10 Anson Road #01-16, 9049-9926).

I was surprised by how much I liked that beef bowl above, mainly because they seasoned it just right. They even spiked it with some kind of salty crushed fish skin, which seemed to be coated in a garlicky Cajun powder mixture or something. Either way, I wolfed it all down and forgot all about how slow they were behind the counter in assembling it.

Note though that the coconut "shake" wasn't a milkshake, but rather just coconut water and pulp. I was more impressed with the soft serve that they had. It seemed more like a sorbet than an ice cream, but there was some kind of powdered gula melaka sprinkled on top that made it wonderful. Plus, it's a nice way to cool off before stepping into the equatorial humidity outside on the way back to the office.
