Doco – You’ll Never Not Know What to Eat Ever Again!
Catering to the working professionals in the central business district, Doco –which is derived from the words ‘donburi’ and ‘coconut’– is a no-frills, quick service place that only has 4 items on its menu.
The whole menu is listed out for you on large TV screens. Of the 4 items, two of them are rice bowls, one’s a drink and the other’s a dessert. No more deliberating on the menu. If you’re still unsure, just flip a coin!
The Sh-nack Don ($9.90) and Sh-ken Don ($9.90), which comes with a bowl of miso soup, are great lunch options for the go-getter. Have them in the 5-seater store, or take them away if you’ve got some work to churn out.
The Sh-nack don comes with grilled beef, Cajun-spiced fish skin Sh-prinkles and a jiggly onsen egg, whereas the Sh-ken don features honey miso chicken, regular fish Sh-prinkles and an onsen egg.
The crushed fish Sh-prinkles, which are crushed fish skin (be it the regular or Cajun-spiced), are lightly torched a la minute. It perfumes the don with a pleasant smoky aroma. Break the yolk of the egg and mix the whole bowl together bibimpbap style for even more flavour in every bite.
Similar to the fish skin, the grilled beef was also torched prior to serving. We would choose the grilled beef over the honey miso chicken as the latter was a little too tough for our liking.
It may seem little, but the rice bowls are hearty and well portioned.
If you’re in need of a sweet ending, try the Coconut Soft Serve ($4.90). The soft serve is made in-house using fresh coconuts, before being drizzled with 100% organic Indonesian gula Melaka, and sprinkled with desiccated coconut.
A great caffeine-free perk me up would be the Coconut Shake ($4.90) – a blend of coconut water and flesh. This refreshing drink is great for beating the constant summer heat in Singapore, and comes in a cute plastic bottle so you can have it on the go.
A choice of donburi with either the shake or soft serve costs only $12.90, which is relatively affordable for dining in the central business district.
