Nomad Cafe @ Icon City, Bukit Mertajam, Penang.

The Poke Bowl fandom continues to explode... with a new Poke Bowl-focused cafe opening at Icon City. Nomad Cafe... the new kid on the block, has a menu suitable for the health-concerns. Not only Poke Bowls are on offer but an array of healthy brunch options as well. To place order for the Poke Bowls, simply take the leaflet from the ordering counter and tick your preferred ingredients. Notable highlights include Soba Noodles and Zucchini Noodles... for those who seek to reduce carbohydrates intake. Generally speaking, serving portion seems to be small at Nomad Cafe but if you are game for some healthy brunch options and a comfortable dining space, give this place a try.

Salmon Poke Bowl with Zucchini Noodles (Rm 16.90)

Truffle Omelette (Rm 20)

For Poke Bowl, we had the Salmon Poke Bowl with Zucchini Noodles instead of the usual carbohydrates. The Zucchini Noodles were soaked in water before scooping up and that affected the overall texture towards the end. The end result was the whole concoction being too wet/ moist to our liking. For a Poke Bowl, we thought the Salmon cubes were a little too scarce. The overall flavor combo did not leave us a very deep-positive impression. The Truffle Omelette on the other hand, fared better than the Poke Bowl... at least the Truffle flavor was bold and the texture was spot on. The Omelette was soft and blanketed in a seemingly cheesy-creamy sauce topped with sauteed Button Mushrooms. A pity that the serving portion was too small for that price tag though.
