Ten-second Takeaway

Healthy food isn’t boring at all, as Bhukkad’s ever-changing menu of delights proves.

The golden path

Bhukkad does healthy food right. We’re tired of resigning ourselves to the unfair binary of a masala dosa or three leaves of lettuce and a cracker for lunch {we kid, we kid}, and we’ve recently found salvation in this upstart. They want to make you delicious, healthy food that’s packed with minimum waste, and we think they’re doing pretty well so far. We love the attention to detail in the packaging: the drinks come in a carefully-lidded container, which means no icky spills on the way {we’re looking at you, neighbourhood Chinese delivery spots}, and the salad comes with dressing packed in a tiny container of its own.

What we ate

You can pick from the fixed menu, or the daily-changing menu, which includes a single dish of the day in each category – drinks, dessert, salad, sandwich, and main course. Suits us just fine. We love their toothsome three-bean salad. Buttery chickpeas, creamy kidney beans {rajma}, black channa, and boiled sweet corn all jostle for your attention, sharing space with crunchy fresh veggies such as cucumbers and peppers. The creamy tahini-based dressing is just flavourful enough to enhance the whole affair.

We’ve also tried and loved the Pesto Fresco and the Hummus Beans Salad – all protein, all the way, enough to keep us energised till late in the night. Bonus: they’re generous with the extra-creamy hummus. All their offerings are available in veg or non-veg options. For dessert, they’re currently offering a whole-wheat chocolate chip cookie – nutty, crumbly, and piled high with chocolate shavings.

If you’re within walking distance of the Bhukkad outlet, we encourage you to check them out, though they can get pretty crowded at peak hours. You can also sign up for their meal bags, which offer you combinations of main courses, drinks, and dessert. 

So, we’re thinking

If you’re trying to eat healthy but don’t quite have the energy to whip up a week’s worth of salad, Bhukkad is a perfect solution for your lunch woes. They deliver quick, and their offerings won’t throw you into a food coma.
