Rabbit Rice Bowl 小兔蔬菜肉碎盖饭



Animal/ Character Food Art - Rabbit Rice Bowl 小兔蔬菜肉碎盖饭. The adorable rabbit is made of hard boiled egg, sitting on a bowl of steamed rice topped with vegetables and stir fry minced meat. This rabbit is very similar to the famous character, Miffy. ;)

Last week, I received a request from one of my follower who wants to learn how to make simple edible rabbit for her children...







I have made this simple one for her. It's easy, I think she's able to replicate it for her children. My boy loves this rabbit so much, I hope her children will love it too. ❤️

How I made it:

1. Cook rice and blanch vegetables. Optional: Prepare mini carrots, use picture below for reference.





Cook a hard boil egg, peel and shape it round - while the egg is still warm, apply pressure on top and bottom of the egg.

2. Cut the egg into half. Use half for the rabbit head, the other half cut into 4 slices.





3. Pick 2 slices to make the rabbit's ears. Cut out 2 circles using the remaining egg white to make the rabbit's paws.




4. Cover with cling wrap. Meanwhile, stir fry minced meat - My boy named this Popo's (grandma's) recipe minced meat. A super delicious homey dish that goes really well with rice, recipe credit to my mom.

K. Cook Korean BBQ Buffet - Orchard Central [Restaurant Review]




K. Cook Orchard Central has just reopened after their renovation, with a new menu and different concept. This is one of the best Korean BBQ buffet in town, with wide varieties of food, good service and reasonable pricing that you can't complain. 







Located at the seventh floor of Orchard Central, there are both air-conditioned and non air-conditioned dining areas which is quite cooling with good air ventilation. Reserve ahead for the best seats especially if you would like to dine at the air-conditioned area.




Non air-conditioned dining area, cooling with good air ventilation.



Air-conditioned dining area.



Air-conditioned dining area.
We were seated at the air-conditioned area which is nearer to the buffet sections. The cooked food section is just a few steps away.



Most people would head to the raw food section first but we weren't because we had to feed the hungry kid with some food first before we could move on to the grill!


Kids- friendly, cooked food & carbs section:


Kimchi Pancakes and Vegetable Pancakes.
These Korean pancakes were kept warm under the infrared Korean BBQ grill.
Taste really good!
 

Fried rice, Korean Soy Sauce Fried Chicken, Bossam, Seaweed Roll and Dumplings.


Japchae aka sweet & savoury Korean stir-fried glass noodles with vegetables.
They served the best Japchae I ever had in BBQ buffet.
I never expect this to be so delicious, this is the dish that will make you come back to grab for more.

Everything on this plate are  - MUST TRY!

Tteok-bokki aka Korean stir-fried rice cakes.
This dish is perfectly seasoned and cooked till "just-enough-chewiness", so flavourful and scrumptious. 


The boy enjoyed the food so much, he especially love the seaweed soup, kept going back for more. 



Korean Style Lunch Box. Give this a good SHAKE before consume, interesting! 



Raw food, vegetables, appetiser & fresh fruits section:

There are wide varieties of meat, seafood and accompanying condiments. 





Don't forget to try out the recommended sauce mix.


The boy was fascinated to create his own sauce mix. 
That's what the kids love to do!
Raw meat and seafood area.
There are generous amount of marinated and non-marinated meat.  

The one that the boy picked was my favourite, the spicy chicken. 



The meat were well-marinated, fresh and tender. 
If you love succulent and flavourful meat, don't miss these - spicy chicken and pork collar (curry).
Highly recommended! 
Fresh fruits, vegetables, salad and appetisers section.


Dessert & drinks section:



Free flow of soft drinks, ice lemon tea and soft serve ice cream + unlimited toppings.


Kids can make their own soft serve ice cream topped with their favourite toppings.

Add-on to standard buffet package:

For alcohol drinker, you can opt for unlimited beer buffet for just $25.


A truly Korean BBQ experience wouldn't be complete without alcoholic drinks, seriously.


I love restaurant with flexible menu and this is the one. 
You can opt for additional charge add-on items or PREMIUM buffet to enjoy free flow of additional charge items. 




The verdict:


We enjoyed our visit, the ambience and dining experience was good. The staffs here are friendly, very attentive and helpful. Food is good and fresh with lots of varieties. The restaurant is clean, food hygiene and housekeeping of the premises are well maintained. 



Recommendation:

Go for Premium Buffet to enjoy free flow of additional charge items. That's more worth it than ordering the items on top of standard buffet.
