It’s been a while since I last did a lunch crawl, but fear not! CBD Warriors, I may not always be there when you call, but I’m not on time either… alright that didn’t go as well as it did in my head. Having discovered that there was a Taiwanese joint around my neck of the woods (at work!), I was excited to introduce Taro to some Taiwanese loving on our usual rendezvous.
Kraken & Crew is located right next to Mr. Fusion and share a communal area where lunch goers can devour their meals in relative comfort. The decor is funky with random tidbits here and there, I definitely felt like I was in a Taiwanese pirate ship of sorts.
Not in the mood for something as filing as their popular bento box combo, we opted for something with a little bit of bite.
These are similar to the chicken bites you will get from Hotstar, juicy and not overly salty. We wished there was some accompanying sauce to balance the salty, fried goodness.
Despite the characteristic cracks around the outer rim of Taro’s bowl of Noodle soup, everything was delicious. I sneaked in a spoon to taste the broth and the flavour was light despite the colour and every spoonful tantalised your taste buds with beef, beef and more beef. I felt it could’ve been a bit more heavy, but Taro didn’t seem too fussed.
My Singapore Noodles took a little longer to come out than it usually does at Kraken, maybe I got a bit too adventurous and took the kitchen by surprise. Eventually, the heaping mound made it’s way to me and Kraken are definitely generous with their portions. I found myself in the same circumstance with the Noodle soup, it just tasted bland and needed just that extra kick. Nothing a little chilli oil or a good swig of Sriracha can’t fix. Next time, I’ll just stick to the lunch time bento box.
Service is fast, friendly and you will usually finish your meal within your lunch break with some time to spare. I would recommend the bento box if you happen to be in the area!
